Chante Cigale Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes France Rhone Valley-Rhone Valley Grenache 2007

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

From the world-renowned, award-winning Châteauneuf-du-Pape producer Chante Cigale, this light-bodied Mediterranean red is a summertime staple at my house. Built in the tradition of a good-quality Côtes du Rhône, this Vin de Pays is bright and lively, with cherry and ripe red raspberry fruits. The smooth texture is backed by silky tannins and never seems at all flabby. Perfect for warm summer nights or light lunches. Food pairing: poultry, seafood Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp

Really bright and fresh, with exuberant cherry, spice and garrigue notes, followed by a light, dusty finish. Drink now.
