Tasting Notes: Cicada takes its name from famed ‘singing cicadas’ of Provence. Fresh ripe red fruits on the nose, flavours are more dark cherry with a touch of spice. The Carignan adds soul to the vibrant Grenache, nicely balanced acidity with smooth tannins.

Alex Favier sources the grapes for his IGPs from land the family owns in the Vaucluse; grapes for this come from 2 lieu-dits in Travaillan to the west of Gigondas – La Marteillère with clay soil for the Grenache & L’Hers on limestone for the Carignan, vines are 30 years old. Hand-harvested and destemmed, short maceration in concrete for the Grenache plus aging in 5 yr old Burgundy barrels for the Carignan to round out the tannins.

Food Match : Great on its own or with pasta, grilled lamb and ratatouille

ABV: 13%
