This product is currently sold out.
The Domaine Chante Cigale Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Vieilles Vignes is a wine with stunning complexity and well defined characters blended beautifully. Utterly brilliant! One to decant then savour. Intensity is the hallmark of the 2009 Vieilles Vignes from Domaine Chante Cigale. A nose of concentrated, deep, dark and black spicy fruit and ripe red fruit on the nose with a lifted violet aroma, hints of vanilla and sweet spices. The palate is at once suffused with sweet-ripe plums, counterpoised by the savouriness of black tapenade, saltiness and finely grained wood. Leather, cloves, a hint of aniseed and a mix of ripe black fruit and cooling herbs is also present. The finish is supple and rounded with excellent integration, complexity and concentration. Open long before serving, ideally from a decanter. Serve this wine alongside meat such as lamb, beef or venison, either grilled or with a spicy or peppery sauce, or with duck pate.
