Tasting notes from The Wine Advocate 91 points
The full-bodied 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault. While not quite as good as the stellar 2015, it boasts silky tannins, plenty of cherry fruit and a dusting of ground pepper and allspice on the long finish.
Domaine Chante Cigale is located within the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and has been owned by the Sabon Favier family for several generations.
The vinification and aging warehouse is constantly evolving in order to respect as much as possible the various terroirs of the domaine Chante Cigale and to meet with its wines needs.
A smooth vinification is carried-out, respectful of the entire berry to preserve the fruit and the minerality, the identity of the special vineyard and of a deeply rooted terroir. A hands-off vinification in which every move counts, duplicated on every isolated parcel with precision, respect and passion.
Every wine from the Domain are then aged in our cellar for several months before the final step of the blending: this crucial and fascinating moment will reveal the entire complexity of our great “terroirs”.
