Château de Saint-Cosme:
Saint Cosme - located north to the village of Gigondas - is the most ancient estate in the region. Lying on the site of a Gallo-Roman villa which very probably already had its own vineyard, the estate's existence in 1416 is attested by a document mentioning the granting by Jean de Chalon, Price of Orange, of "land for the planting of vines on the Saint Cosme slopes."

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.

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.

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 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 Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Chateau de Saint Cosme Cote Rotie 750ml

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.

Bright ruby-red. Raspberry preserves, incense and lavender on the intensely perfumed nose. Juicy and broad on entry but tighter and more nervy in the mid-palate, offering vibrant red berry and candied cherry flavors along with hints of star anise and floral pastille. Lush but lively Gigondas with excellent back end-cut and persistence. Barruol told me that these vines average over 80 years of age.

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.

Rich and dense, but velvety and nicely detailed, with sleek-edged cassis, blackberry and plum fruit woven with white pepper, mulled spice and dark olive notes. A strong, tangy, iron edge takes over on the finish, with lots of latent grip. Best from 2013 through 2022. 900 cases made. -JM As for the negociant northern Rhone selections, the dense purple-hued 2009 Cote Rotie reveals lots of black olive, bacon fat, black raspberry and blackberry fruit notes intertwined with hints of charcoal and underbrush. This impressively endowed, medium to full-bodied Cote Rotie should drink well for 10-15 years. Bright purple. Classic syrah aromas of cherry, boysenberry and violet, complicated by smoked meat, pipetobacco and licorice. Vibrant and sweet, showing impressive depth to its dark fruit preserve, anise and floral flavors. Tangy acidity and silky tannins give lift and shape to the long, floral finish. 100% Serine (Syrah)Soil : SchistesAged for 15 months in ne...
