CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE RED
Domaine des Cigalons

On the palate, like the old Château, it proudly develops its great architectural dimension. Behind a cherry color with purple reflections, the Domaine des Cigalons is both fine and very dense. The bouquet begins to open up with notes of cherries, ripe raspberries and sweet spices. Round, ample, silky and generous, it is a harmonious wine to be enjoyed over the next three or four years.

Ground

Winemaking
The vinification benefits from modern equipment, pneumatic press and scraper for certain cuvées; Fermentation takes place under temperature control using cold equipment. This method of vinification allows us to have more fruity wines as well as better conservation. 

Tasting

Ample, full-bodied and structured, these are wines with a powerful and complex bouquet. Behind a cherry color with purple reflections, this wine is both fine and very dense. The bouquet begins to open up with notes of sour cherry, ripe raspberries and sweet spices. Round, ample, silky and generous, it is a harmonious wine to be enjoyed over the next three or four years.

Sommelier's advice
