What do you get when you cross a Favier with a Sabon? Why, out-of-this-world Chandacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape of course! The pedigree of Chante Cigale sets you up for unbelievable quality, and the wines over-deliver every time. Superb balance and deeply concentrated flavors characterize the 2005 Vieilles Vignes. New flavors emerge with every sip: lush black currant, garrigue, cracked black pepper and smoke. Drinks well now, but this one is built to last for several years. At a fraction of the cost of many comparable high-end reds, you can serve this again and again andmdash; great with lamb, braised beef, roast duck or hearty vegetarian dishes.

The compelling 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (78% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre) is made from 60- to 120-year-old vines. Its dense plum/purple hue is followed by knock-out aromas of incense, crushed pepper, cedar, black currant jam, licorice, and sweet cherries. Voluptuously textured, opulent, and round with well-formed, moderately high tannins that are nearly covered by the wine's fruit and glycerin, it will easily last 15-20 years in a cold, damp cellar.

Deeper, fuller, broader, and fuller-bodied than the regular bottling with greater concentration, depth, length, and I assume, much better aging potential as well, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a beauty. This is a bold wine of considerable exuberance, with impressive levels of kirsch-like fruit intermixed with some blacker fruits, ground pepper, incense, and roasted herbs. It is very full-bodied, has admirable glycerin and depth, noticeable but sweet tannin, and a 40+-second finish. This is a super Chateauneuf du Pape that should hit its peak in 2andndash;4 years and last for 15 or more years.
