Domaine Chante Cigale Chateauneuf du Pape 2015
|Brand||Domaine Chante Cigale|
Wine AdvocateOne surprise to emerge from this blind tasting was the super performance of Chante Cigale's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape. This full-bodied blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault boasts wonderfully supple, creamy tannins, raspberry and cherry fruit, and a dusting of cinnamon and allspice on the long, dusty finish. Bravo! Drink Date: 2017-2030.
Wine SpectatorThis sports a lightly smoky frame, with notes of tobacco and bittersweet cocoa around a core of lightly mulled cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. The structure is silky and refined, letting the finish play out nicely. Best from 2018 through 2028. 5,000 cases made.
