Domaine Danielle Laurent vineyard is Laurent Montalieu’s home vineyard at Solena Estate. It’s a special, special vineyard that runs on a severe slope and shares the same hill as Shea Vineyard. But unlike the Shea Pinot which required a favor from Anne to secure, Laurent is Anne’s boss – so securing a few choice plots to further her Single-Vineyard Trousse Chemise project was “no big deal”. But, in fact it really was.
No doubt Anne’s tireless dedication to Hyland and Solena over the past decade plus earned her a chance to make a single-vineyard off this special sentimary soiled vineyard along Y-C’s rolling hills. But she’s the first one to do it!
Founded in 2000 by Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus (Gary’s daughter), the 80-acre vineyard has long been a particularly sweet spot on winemakers’ radars. But for the past twenty years, Danielle and Laurent have turned down dozens of requests for fruit off the vineyard, opting instead to use it for their perennial Wine Spectator Top 100 feature, Solena Estate’s Grand Cuvee as well as the crown jewel of the Solena lineup, the DDL Vineyard Pinot.
