The 2017 Cuvée Barberini from Domaine de la Solitude is a simply stunning blend which is composed of mainly Roussanne with some Clairette. This exotic white begins with beautiful aromas of apple, Meyer lemon cream, honeysuckle, nectarine, toasted almond and white flowers. On the palate this possesses displays wonderful textural richness, with a gorgeous creamy texture, backed by layers of citrus, pear and honey flavors which persist through the finish. This is an absolute gem, which is already extremely delicious today with some air contact, however it also possesses the potential for to age brilliantly over the course of the next decade. This is a clear standout in this vintage.
