The vinification and aging warehouse is constantly evolving in order to respect as much as possible the various terroirs of the domaine Chante Cigale and to meet with its wines needs.
Alexandre Favier invest in a custom fitted equipment, adapted to his split-up vineyard. Various containers are chosen according to the parcel or the” lieu-dit”: concrete, inox vats, egg-shaped or casks…
A smooth vinification is carried-out, respectful of the entire berry to preserve the fruit and the minerality, the identity of the special vineyard and of a deeply rooted terroir. A hands-off vinification in which every move counts, duplicated on every isolated parcel with precision, respect and passion.
Every wine from the Domain are then aged in our cellar for several months before the final step of the blending: this crucial and fascinating moment will reveal the entire complexity of our great “terroirs”.
