Domaine Chante Cigale The Cicada IGP Rouge
This product is currently sold out.
Domaine Chante Cigale are known for producing award winning Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but with The Cicada they have brought us a lighter style of red from the Southern Rhone that uses their Grenache Noir growing expertise they employ for their Pape! The Cicada takes its name from the emblem of the Domaine, Chante Cigale, the famed ‘singing cicadas’ of Provence. Fresh raspberry fruits on the nose, flavours are more ripe cherry with a touch of spice. As well as the Grenache Noir, The Cicada includes 20% Carignan which adds a bit of soul to the vibrant Grenache, nicely balanced acidity and supple tannins. As this is such a lusciously fruity and light wine, it's really nice lightly chilled and pairs really well with pasta and risotto dishes. This is a top drawer wine at an incredibly low price. We like it a lot at Kwoff.
Grapes: Grenache Noir 80%, Carignan 20%
