Domaine des Cigalounes Lirac 2019

A rich yet juicy wine full of fleshy black fruit flavours with a
hint of vanilla, warm and spicy.
Producer Note
Domaine des Cigalounes is a small seven hectare property, located on the rocky
plateau between the villages of Tavel and Lirac on the opposite bank of the Rhône
from Châteauneuf du Pape.
Vintage
A wet winter was followed by a mild spring, which maintained the soil’s water reserves
and nourished the vines later in the year during the warm growing period. The summer
was very hot and dry which allowed the grapes to reach excellent maturity, resulting in
expressive wines with wonderful fruit concentration.
Vineyard
Lirac is an appellation on the western side of the southern Rhône Valley. Domaine de
Cigalounes is a seven hectare property which has been certified organic since 2012. It
is located on the rocky plateau between the villages of Tavel and Lirac, on the opposite
bank of the Rhône from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The vines are grown according to
traditional philosophies, in red soils with a pebbly topsoil.
Winemaking
Winemaker, Emmanuelle Gauthier as a non-interventionist, looks for finesse and silky
tannins, rather than over-extraction.The grapes were hand-harvested at optimum
maturity and sorted to ensure only the highest quality fruit was vinified. Each variety was
fermented separately with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel
tanks, lasting for three weeks. 20% of the blend was matured in barrel imparting subtle
complexity.
