This elegant wine is almost gold in color, with delectable flavors of honey and pear. The wine is medium-bodied but exquisitely balanced. It is subtly complex and suprisingly versatile. An amazing value.
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.
This rich red displays lovely detail, as chestnut, tobacco and sage notes are inlaid in the core of dark plum, braised fig and macerated blackberry fruit. The long, smoldering finish has superb acidity, with mouthwatering mesquite and licorice snap notes that really stretch it out. Drink now through 2022.
A gorgeous wine, with an interplay of ripe, dripping blackberry, cassis and plum sauce flavors providing the flesh, offset by smoldering charcoal, tobacco and bittersweet cocoa notes, which provide the angles. The long finish has nice intensity. Best from 2012 through 2022.
The 2009 Gigondas Valbelle exhibits perfumed floral notes intermixed with hints of underbrush, crushed rocks, roasted herbs, blueberries and blackberries. Medium to full-bodied with moderate tannins, it will benefit from 2–3 years of cellaring and keep for 10–15 years thereafter.
The dense ruby/purple 2009 Cote Rotie possesses great acid, with loads of tapenade, black raspberry, and smoky lard/bacon fats notes. Its outstanding texture, full-bodied mouthfeel, and terrific finish all suggest a wine that should drink well for 10... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

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
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.
