Domaine Chante Cigale, Extrait, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (white), 2018

When you think about James Bond movies which wine do you think James Bond would drink(except of course his legendry vodka-martini)? It would need to be wine with elegance, feel of luxury. You guess of course it would not be just any standard mass production wine, even a high end one, instead it should have a depth, texture and uniqueness. Well, if you still search for that kind of wine, search no more, as we have just found a good candidate! And it is coming no more or less, but from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the infamous wine growing appellation in France.

Domaine Chante Cigale, Extrait, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (white), 2018

This wine smells and tastes of elegance, it is parfume like – incorporating aromas of lemongrass, along with flinty minerality coming from limestone – giving great texture that is augmented by maturation in concrete eggs – where half of wine was matured. Another half was matured in big oak barrels (demi muid) which gave it nice rustic and oxidation notes. The blend of those is presented in this bottle and it is a bottle of elegance and complexity, matched with full extract, perfectly interwoven in a whole piece.

This wine will suit all tastes, non professional with elegance, balance and feel of luxury, and professional, with its perfect fruit extract, nice texture, and mineral scents.. On my yacht this summer i will drink only this wine, and look no more.. This is my perfect James Bond wine! 😎
