2019 Domaine Chante Cigale Blanc Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Winemaker Notes: Nose of exotic fruits and white flowers; marked by its roundness and finesse on the palate with a mineral finish. Pair with Provençal and Mediterranean cuisine such as filet of red mullet with fleur de sel and stewed, smoked aubergine.
Madeline Triffon, MS Selection: "Peachy in fragrance and flavor, and rich in texture, with added minerality and grip. A big, handsome white wine."
Jeb Dunnuck - "Starting with the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc from this estate, it checks in as a blend of 20% each of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette, Picpoul, and Bourboulenc. Giving up a rock-solid bouquet of honeyed apples, citrus blossom, white flowers, and a kiss of honeyed toast, this beauty has a supple, seamless texture and beautiful overall balance. Medium-bodied on the palate, this is just a classic Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc that does everything right, delivering plenty of mid-palate and texture, a solid sense of freshness, and a clean, dry finish. It’s going to shine on the dinner table and is well worth following over the coming 2-4 years."
