Domaine Chante Cigale 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge


Chante Cigale means singing cicada. The property has been in the family since the 19th century and is currently run by Alexandre Favier, who assumed the reins at the ripe old age of 20! The domaine is planted to 40 ha of red and 5 ha of white on 45 different parcels throughout the appellation. The red is made with 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and 5% Cinsault using native yeasts and matured in a mix of foudres, tanks, and a small amount of new and used barrels.


Robert Parker's 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."
