Cicada, Alexandre Favier

Cicada, Alexandre Favier

A new white wine from Alex Favier (famed for his Châteauneuf-du-Pape whites). Produced under his Cicada label (there's a red too). The Cicada takes its name from the emblem of the Domaine – Chante Cigale – the famed ‘singing cicadas’ of Provence.

An unusual blend of Viognier (40%), Picpoul Blanc (30%) & Grenache Blanc (30%). Sourced from clay limestone soils in Richerenes in the Vaucluse for the Sauvignon and Picpoul, with the Viognier sourced in the Northern Rhône (so the wine is classified as Vin de France). Vinified in stainless steel, with a short maceration of one week. Alex Favier then puts the final blend together.

Easy-drinking, unoaked and not too serious but still a properly flavoursome white wine with lovely aromatics on the nose, nice weight on the palate and a fresh, bright finish. Fantastic with coconut based Thai curries.
