Tasting Notes

Chante Cigale means singing cicada. The property has been in the family since the 19th century and is currently run by Alexandre Favier, who assumed the reins at the ripe old age of 20! The domaine is planted to 40 ha of red and 5 ha of white on 45 different parcels throughout the appellation. The Blanc is a blend of equal parts Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Bourbelenc and Clairette. The grapes are destemmed and fermented with native yeasts. Elevage is in a combination of tanks and 5% new oak barrels with no malolactic fermentation. Only a small amount of this wine is made, and it is always one of the great values for white from the region. Praise for this producer from Wine Advocate: "Another rising star, the young Alexander Favier continues to release deep, rich and concentrated Châteauneuf du Papes that have beautiful purity of fruit as well as classic Southern Rhône characters."
