Domaine Chante Cigale Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2013


SKU 18516


Clear Yellow with golden lights. Very stylish with a floral exotic bouquet and a full body and explosion of tropical fruit favours on palate. Pair with seafood, fish, white meat and Mediterranean food. Drink in his youngness but can be aged as long as reds.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is a fine white that's made from equal parts Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc and Clairette. Aged 30% in barrel and 70% in tank, it has classic apple, citrus blossom and edgy minerality in its fresh, focused, downright racy style. I love the purity here. It should flesh out well with another year in bottle and drink nicely for 2-3 years.

Wine SpectatorThis white features a lively edge, with blanched almond and jicama notes framing a core of heather, white peach, yellow apple and melon rind flavors. A quinine hint adds tang to the finish. Drink now. 1,500 cases made.
