External Reviews for 6047 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chante Cigale
Focused, with the grip of the vintage, this is holding its core of black cherry, garrigue and tar notes in reserve for now, while coffee, briar and licorice root notes hold sway on the structured finish. Best from 2010 through 2018.
Deep violet. Very primal and a bit reduced, with raw blackberry and cassis scents deepened by tobacco and espresso. Chewy dark fruit flavors are accented by licorice and bitter chocolate and framed by firm tannins. Sweetens on the back, finishing with a persistent kirsch flavor.
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a deep ruby/purple color and classic Provencal aromatics of garrigue, ground pepper, kirsch, and loamy soil notes. Medium to full-bodied, richly fruity, it has soft, silky tannins and decent acidity. This is a 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape to drink now and over the next 10andndash;12 years.
Their 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape (a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and the rest equal parts Mourvedre and Cinsault) has an open, heady nose of Provencal spices, pepper, kirsch liqueur and the classic dusty garrigue notes. Smoky, earthy notes follow through on the palate with heady alcohol, plenty of fruit, and a soft texture with good freshness and purity. This wine should be drunk over the next decade.
Dark red. Powerfully aromatic nose offers smoky gamey strawberry and raspberry aromas with suave herb and spice qualities adding intrigue. Silky red berry preserve flavors combine depth and freshness conveying a deft marriage of fruit and tannins and impressive finishing sweetness. This is delicious right now.
