A full-bodied white with rich, ripe pear fruit that develops into floral and herby peachiness. The wine has a long leesy character and fresh acidity. Attractive when young but worth leaving for a couple of years, which will allow the wine to develop some wonderful nutty and mineral notes.
The Domaine Chante Cigale, located within the village of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, is owned and operated by the Favier family. Recently Christian Favier the father released the reins to his son, Alexandre, who at 22 years old, looks entirely too young to be making such impressive wines.
The domaine consists of 102 acres of land classified Chateauneuf-du-Pape. It has been owned by the Sabon Favier family for several generations. The wines of the Domaine can be considered as classic, wellmade, reasonably priced Chateauneufs.
Nice on its own or with goats or sheep cheeses, delicate pork or full flavoured fish dishes with cream and herbs such as dill. Also goes well with shellfish and seafood.
Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc/Garnacha Blanca and Roussanne
