Tasting Notes

Hauntingly fragrant, reminiscent of almond and peach blossom. The palate is a wonderfully smooth, silky textured balance of dried apricot fruit and fresh appley acidity.

Producer Profile

Domaine Chante Cigale is located within the village of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and has been owned by the Sabon Favier family for several generations. Consisting of 41 hectares, the domaine benefits from old vines, some of which are veritably ancient at over 100 years old. Alexandre Favier took over from his father, Christian, and is part of a new wave of producers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, combining modern technical expertise with time-honoured winemaking practices. Alexandre is lauded by notable journalists including Steve Danzier and Jancis Robinson for his deftly-made and reasonably-priced wines. Domaine Chante Cigale has also built a reputation for specialising in white wines, of which they produce more than any other estate in the appellation.
