Le Cigare Volant Red Wine, Unfiltered
Le Cigare Volant. Established in 1983. In 1954 the village council of Chatcauneuf-du-Pape was quite perturbed and apprehensive that flying saucers or flying cigars might do damage to their vineyards were they to land therein. So, right-thinking men all, they passed an ordinance prohibiting the landing of flying saucers or flying cigars in their vineyards. (This ordinance has worked very well in discouraging such landings.) The ordinance further states that any volitational object that did alight was to be taken immediately to the pound. No woofer this wine, we feel rather that it is quite a stellar accomplishment. The composition of our Flying Cigar is based on the traditional encepagement of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. It contains 50% grenache, 24% mourvedre, 22% syrah, 3% carignane and 1% cinsault. Alc. 13.5% by vol.
