Intensity is the hallmark of the 2009 ‘Vieilles Vignes’ from Domaine Chante Cigale.
A nose of concentrated, deep, dark and black spicy fruit and ripe red fruit on the nose with a lifted violet aroma, hints of vanilla and sweet spices.
The palate is complex with sweet-ripe plums, savoury black olives, and woody notes. Leather, cloves, a hint of aniseed and a mix of ripe black fruit is also there.
The finish is supple and rounded with excellent integration, complexity and concentration.
Made from the classic Rhone grapes of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.
