2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape

8. Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas (2010)

« Prev 8 of 8
Average price: $39.99 from 29 stores
The nose here is fine and focused if entirely dominated by the aromas of crushed blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry fruit. On the palate this is low, broad and extracted with dark fruit and powerfully woody tannins that saturate the palate and cut the finish short. This wine lacks balance and is dominated by unpleasant tannins and extracted fruit. 83pts

  • 541617CarlJBonura Domaine Durieu make a beautiful Chateauneuf du Pape that fills the mouth and is excellently priced at list of $40 but which can be found for under $30. I think it is an excellent buy.


  • 253137hugh27 I could not disagree more- the wines chosen with the exception of Beaucastel are always poorer performers to some of the lesser lights- just because they have the name does not mean they have the quality- For Vacqueyras there is non better than Domaine de Monardiere and Gigondas Les Goubert- but for Chateauneuf the top available stars are Clos deu Caillou, Grand Tinel, & Bosquet des Papes, sadly the best but almost impossible to find -Domaine de Marcooux- 100 points, Roger Sabon, 99 pts and Laurent Charvin, 99 pts. also give a look at Olivier Hillaire


  • 1098305Tom Wandeloski I was able to taste and review the 2009 vintage recently. It was very good. Fruit notes of plum and fig with a hint of cocoa and tobacco. It has a long finish on the palette with mid-acidity. This wine has not peaked and will mature nicely over time (2019-2024).
