From the Winery

“Saint Cosme owns 15 hectares of old vines (average 60 years old) producing Gigondas wines from their vineyards which encircle the château. In 1997, it was with the ‘savoir-faire’ of this vigneron to create a négociant-vigneron company to work with ancient growing methods and represent the terroir of the Rhône Valley. They sought out small producers to work with, with the same quality ambitions.”

“This unoaked Côtes-du-Rhône made of 100% Syrah has a dark color, with a captivating nose of blackberry, blackcurrant and blueberry and a lush, profound palate of fruit. All of this revolves around a rich Rhône style with abundant yet fine, supple tannins and good salinity. Crafted with partially destemmed fruit from vines grown in soils with limestone sand, red clay and pebbles on Villafranchian terraces.”

“The Syrah grape requires a warm climate to fully ripen but enough moderating effect to produce intense, aromatic wines that are not overwhelmed by sweetness and alcohol. This Syrah grows in ideal terroirs of the southern Rhône and shows the varietal’s typical spicy notes of sandalwood, violets, and black pepper. Syrah, with its deep flavors and firm tannins, is a natural match for grilled or smoked meat and dishes featuring herbs, roasted mushrooms, and onions. Seared venison or beef with black pepper and thyme or a Moroccan tagine of pigeon or chicken are complimented by the spicy characteristic of Syrah.”

90 Points and #9 Value Wine of the Year in the Wine Spectator for 2023 – “A hefty version of Cotes du Rhone, with a lot of stuffing, showing ripe black plum and black currant flavors layered with black pepper and grilled rosemary. Sturdy tannins hem in the creamy palate, with a kick of bitter mineral and graphite through the medium-length finish. Very solid. Drink now through 2028. 27,000 cases imported.”
