External Reviews for Saint-cosme Côtes Du Rhône Les Deux Albion
Bright ruby-red. Raspberry, blackberry and Asian spices on the exotically perfumed nose. Sappy, palate-staining red fruit flavors show superb depth and a building spice character. A lively jolt of minerality adds lift to the finish, which features notes of bitter herbs and red berry liqueur. This wine unfurls slowly and should be stashed away to age for at least another five years.
The prodigious, full-bodied 2007 Gigondas Valbelle exhibits a dense purple color as well as a glorious perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, dark cherries, and ink. It reveals prodigious concentration, a 45+-second finish, and no hardness or rough edges. The vintage's acids have given the wine tremendous aromatic and flavor freshness, delineation, and vibrancy despite its enormous size and richness. This wine should evolve for 10-15+ years.
A brilliant effort, the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albion is composed of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre and Clairette, all co-fermented and aged in primarily concrete tanks and some of the newer wood tanks called tronconique. This potentially... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Chateau de Saint Cosme Cotes du Rhone les Deux Albion 750ml
Bright purple. More high-pitched than the straight Gigondas, showing vivid raspberry and floral scents and strong minerality. Juicy red berry flavors gain depth and power with air and take on a smoky, dried floral quality. The finish is spicy and impressively energetic, with lingering notes of smoke and minerals.
Proprietor Louis Barruol told me this came from schist soils and was aged 15 months in 100% new oak. A good value is the 2009 St.-Joseph, which comes from the granite soils of this appellation. Aged in 100% new oak, this opaque purple wine exhibits l... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Saint Cosme, Chateau de St Joseph 750ml
From yellow clay and Jurassic limestone, the 2009 Gigondas Le Claux is aged in the same manner as the Hominis Fides. This deep ruby/purple-tinged 2009 possesses excellent concentration, but its astringency and elevated tannins may present a problem with the wine’s equilibrium in 4–5 years. I will have a better view of this wine once it is in bottle. As I have written previously, there is no more passionate and talented proprietor than Louis Barruol.
Inky ruby. Sexy, expansive aromas of blackberry, cola and allspice, with notes of apricot and anise adding complexity. Densely packed red and dark fruit flavors coat the palate, with sexy oak spice and floral nuances adding appeal. Rich and silky in ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
