2007 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1058135

90 points Wine Spectator: "Rich but stylish, with a lovely silky feel and lots of fragrant espresso, incense, blackberry and mulled currant notes. Nice dark fruit and spice hangs on through the modestly toasty finish. Drink now through 2018." 90 points Robert Parker: "Readers looking for the bottled essence of Provence should check out the dark ruby/purple/plum-colored 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape, a brilliant blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and 5% Cinsault aged in a combination of old foudres, concrete tanks, and small new oak barrels. Deep, broad, profound plum, fig, cassis, garrigue, and cherry notes are found in both the aromas and flavors, and as the wine sits in the glass, roasted meat blood juices also emerge. Rich and intense with silky tannins, this wine will be even better with another 1-2 years of bottle age, and should last for 15 or more years." (10/09)

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
