2011 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1148821 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Moving to the reds, and a beautiful 2011 that shows the best of the vintage, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape offers up loads of Asian spices, kirsch, ground herbs and cedar in a medium-bodied, sweetly fruity and balanced package. Complex and already drinking great, it should evolve gracefully for 8-10 years. Drink now-2021.  (10/ 2013)

K&L Notes

For over 10 years now we've been bringing in Chante Cigale Chateauneuf-du-Pape and we're happy to now offer the 2011. Cigale farms vineyards of all 13 varietals, and the 2011 CNP is crafted from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvédre and Cinsault growing on fantastic pebbly/sandy soil. The property has been in the Jourdan family since 1874 and has been managed by their new generation since 2006. The young and talented Alexandre Favier has been coaxing incredibly good wines at fantastic prices and we hope he continues using his talents for years to come. 15% abv.

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- 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.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- 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.
