Points : 93 - 2005  Cuvee Barberini
Domaine de la Solitude Chateauneuf du Pape

I loved Domaine de la Solitude’s 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Barberini. Made from 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah (from vines around the estate.. La Solitude and La Crau lieux-dits) that was raised in 30% new barrels, it exhibits a big, rich profile, with notes of chocolate-covered black fruits, licorice and smoked meats emerging from the glass. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and layered, it’s drinking brilliantly now, but should continue to hold nicely through 2025.


Points : 96 - 2005  Cuvee Cornelia Constanza
Domaine de la Solitude Chateauneuf du Pape

Made from 100% Grenache, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Cornelia Constanza is about as hedonistic and voluptuous as they come in the vintage. Loaded with sweet kirsch, blackberry, garrigue, truffle and damp underbrush aromas and flavors, this full-bodied beauty has no hard edges, a layered, decadent texture and a blockbuster finish. This is Grenache at its most sexy and exuberant. I’d drink it over the coming 3-5 years, but it will evolve for longer.


Points : 96 - 2005  Cuvee Reserve Secrete
Domaine de la Solitude Chateauneuf du Pape

The inky colored 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape la Reserve Secrete is the top wine of the estate and checks in as a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah that was raised in 40% new barrels. Another brilliant wine, it offers up a deep, rich style to go with notes of cassis, olive tapenade, beef blood, truffle and game. Beautifully concentrated, with a full, loaded mid-palate and still notable structure, it’s at the early stages of maturity, and will have another 15+ years of longevity. This is a seriously impressive Châteauneuf du Pape.
