Domaine Chante Cigale Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc
Domaine Chante Cigale Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc - From one of the best white winemakers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape!
Deeply coloured with fine, fresh aromas of ripe pear and white peach. When enjoyed young, freshness and a lighter touch dominates the palate; as the wine matures, the flavours become deeper, richer and more complex.
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.
