A new white wine from Alex Favier (famed for his Châteauneuf-du-Pape whites). Produced under his Cicada label (there's a red too). The Cicada takes its name from the emblem of the Domaine – Chante Cigale – the famed ‘singing cicadas’ of Provence.

An unusual blend of Grenache Blanc 40%, Viognier (30%), Picpoul Blanc (30%). Sourced from clay limestone soils in Richerenes in the Vaucluse for the Sauvignon and Picpoul, with the Viognier sourced in the Northern Rhône (so the wine is classified as Vin de France). Vinified in stainless steel, with a short maceration of one week. Alex Favier then puts the final blend together.

Cicada Blanc by Chante Cigale Vin de France is easy-drinking, unoaked and not too serious but still a properly flavoursome white wine with lovely aromatics on the nose, nice weight on the palate and a fresh, bright finish.

Coconut flavoured Thai and Vietnamese dishes, or as a delicious foil to barbecued or grilled mackerel.

Please note that all case deals can take between 7-10 days for delivery.
