2007 Domaine de La Solitude, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc
Domaine de la Solitude
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
It is excellent as an aperitif when young. Hot pot with truffles, pan-fried foie gras, crab "à l'americaine", brandade of cod with truffles, veal cutlets with a mushroom sauce, Roquefort cheese.
The nose is complex showing aromas of flowers from the vines combined with honey and with a hint of subtle wood very well integrated. The palate is rich and elegant, with notes of violet flowers combined with fresh minerality and finishing very long.
Robert Parker Score: 89/100
