Being mindful of the situationwe are all in, since you temporarily cannot enjoy Soliste at your favorite restaurant, we have selected a few wines typically sold only to restaurants and we are offering them to you at our restaurant-direct wholesale price. Additionally, shipping is complimentary for purchases of six bottles or more. If you are interested in our MonoClone® Pinot Noirs or other allocated wines, please contact us or login to see your Allocation of current releases here.
Sonatera is one of those unique vineyard sites that truly exemplifies the Soliste philosophy and style. The hilltop vineyard has three different exposures, facing north, south, and west. This geography funnels brisk marine winds over the vines reducing vigor, extending the ripening period of the grapes, and allowing distinctive aromatics to develop. Once you have tasted Sonatera Pinot Noir, you will always be able to identify its origins.
Nouveau Monde...The Elegance of Volnay meets the Power of Corton
Expect perfection and great pleasure from this incredibly aromatic, exotic, and elegant Pinot Noir. Nouveau Monde is the pure expression of our Philosophy: To focus on a single clone to craft a wine that beautifully marries the virtues of both Volnay and Corton.
As our story goes, the name Soliste comes from the special single barrel the Burgundian vigneron reserves for friends and family. Our single barrel wines represent the promise and journey that is Soliste.
One Barrique, 100% Whole Cluster, 45 Month Élevage
In 2012, we singled out a unique barrique with the purest aromas and structure. The wine was aged for 45 months (nearly four years) until the Beast was tamed. La Sauvage is extraordinary in complexity and depth; a great paradox of muscular aromas and silky texture.
A most decadent release from the masters of complication
Vendanges Tardives Exceptionelles
The wine is extremely complex with exotic floral aromatic, honeycomb and stone fruit pit, dense without being heavy, superbly balanced. The food parings for this wine are limitless; exceptional with Foie Gras, and pork belly, tuna tartare, risotto with white truffles (if one need to suffer) and exquite with cheese and walnuts (aged mancheco or brillat savarin). It is also quite fabulous as an aperitif and of course with dessert (roasted pears with crème fraiche ice cream). This is a festive wine that will make your holiday season sparkle.
