DOMAINE CHANTE CIGALE CHâTEAUNEUF DU PAPE

PRICE

£28.99

France >> Rhone Valley >> Grenache

Description

65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault

Domaine Chante-Cigale is owned by the Favier-Sabon family - it's been in their hands for generations and is one of the oldest in the region - and occupies some 40 hectares comprised of different parcels of land around the village of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, located between Orange and Avignon. The wine has lots of warm red fruit and damson aromas, with cinnamon, spices and jam but also concentration on the palate; then liquoricey richness and elegance to finish.

 90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue 169, 2007) Dense ruby/purple with notes of licorice, incense, tar, black cherry and blackberry, this is a rich, full-bodied wine with plemt of power, moderately high tannins, good underlying acidity and terrific delineation and length. This is an impressive Châteauneuf-du-Pape but not one to drink in its exuburant youth. Anticipated maturity 2008-2020.
