Domaine Chante Cigale Extrait Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc
Domaine Chante Cigale Extrait Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc - A modern style of oaked white Châteauneuf from a stellar producer.
Flavours of peaches and dulche de leche are overlaid with creamy, spicy oak. The style is unctuous and textured and will develop even more complexity as it ages.
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 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, located between Orange and Avignon.
Recently Christian Favier the father released the reins to his son, Alexandre, who is fast becoming new rising star of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Despite only being in his early 20's he has been lauded by notable journalists Steve Danzier in the US and Jancis Robinson in the UK.
