Tasting Notes

The 2017 Cairanne “la Cigalette” from Domaine de Dionysos is a lovely bottle, with the vines hailing from parcels planted on red clay littered with galets roulés. The cépages here is fifty-five percent grenache, thirty-five percent syrah and ten percent mourvèdre and the 2017 version comes in listed at 14.5 percent octane. The wine delivers a superb aromatic constellation of raspberries, smoked meats, woodsmoke, a superb base of stony soil tones, pepper, gentle notes of garrigue (more lavender than rosemary), a touch of cedar and a lovely array of Indian spice tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, tangy and complex, with a sappy core of fruit, lovely mineral drive, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, bouncy and vibrant finish of impressive breed and complexity. This is first class Cairanne that is still in climbing mode and will be even better with a few more years bottle age, but is already very tasty indeed!
