Chateau De Saint Cosme
chateau de saint cosme gigondas 2018 750ml
$63.99 SPECIAL $59.99
In years like this, Saint Cosme often reveals its "Burgundian" style, reminiscent of delicate Pinot and its aromas of red berries, forest floor and violets. Salinity acts as a flavor enhancer and freshness underscores the harmony of the whole, with all its charm and depth. Blend: 70% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 1% Cinsault
93 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Saint Cosme's 2018 Gigondas is a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 14% Syrah and 1% Cinsault, aged in a combination of new and used oak, with 30% of the volume matured in concrete. Full-bodied and generous, it's round and supple, with no hard edges to hamper the easy flow of asphalt, red raspberries and black cherries across the palate. Boasting ample but not excessive concentration, it's a lovely, seductive example of Gigondas to enjoy over the next decade or so."

"Moving to the wines from bottle, the base Gigondas from this estate is a perennial winner and readers can safely buy bottles of this in just about every vintage. Giving up a ProvenÃ§al bouquet of red and black currants, peppery herbs, leather, and loamy soil, the 2018 is medium to full-bodied, has a forward, sexy style, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's terrific today yet still has enough tannins to evolve for 10-15 years if you're so inclined."
93 points - Decanter
"Immediately very expressive, with a touch of elderberry among the bright damson, lifted by subtle sandalwood spice. Only medium-bodied on the palate, bright, brisk and lively, with precise acidity and salinity through the palate. Beautifully fresh and drinkable with a medium-length finish.

"A restrained style, with hints of garrigue and sage out front and a core of lightly dried red cherry and dark plum fruit picking up light brick dust and incense accents. Long, mineral-edged finish leaves a nice echo.W&S90Wine & SpiritsAs with all of Louis Barruol's wines, this comes from organically farmed vines and was fermented as whole bunches with ambient yeasts; 30 percent aged in cement tanks while the rest went into a mix of used and new casks. It feels supple and relaxed, with a black-pepper spice that reinforces the wine's brisk, fresh acidity. Its foresty herbal notes and inviting demeanor suggest a match with lamb grilled over rosemary."
