Domaine des Soulanes

Daniel and Cathy Lafitte are the perfect winemaking partnership: Daniel makes the wine and Cathy supports him with the admin and marketing as well as helping out in the vineyard. They own 17 hectares of vines around Mas Amiel in the district of Tautavel, the latest acquisition being a small vineyard named “le pantalon”. Daniel and Cathy bought the domain in the late nineties after working with the previous owner and Daniel’s step father for 15 years and renamed it Domaine des Soulanes (a Soulane is a south/south east facing hillside). Memorable wines from a delightful couple.

Aged in a cuve rather than in wood this fruit driven cuvée shows dark fruits with smooth and silky tannins and a delicious lingering finish.

As with all of their other wines no chemical herbicides or pesticides have been used on the land and the wines have not been filtered nor fined. This wine should be drunk at temperature of 12 degrees and shows wonderful flavours of tropical fruit, especially star fruit, and some pear. It can be drunk as an aperitif and is also the perfect match to citrus and tropical fruit desserts.

This wine is aged in French oak barriques and displays delicious spicy dark fruit and smooth tannins. Like all the wines of Domaine Soulanes the wine has not been filtered or fined and can develop a deposit so decanting is recommended. Being a dense and very concentrated wine it would be the perfect match to meat dishes such as boeuf en daube or boeuf bourgignon.
