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."

Gamy, savory and spicy on the nose, this is cut from a different cloth than most Cotes du Rhone. Barnyard, deeply aromatic and rich with slightly lifted aromas of earthy raspberry fruit,, green olive, worcestershire sauce and lamb with a hint of orange and mint, there’s a diner in my glass. Big rich, and black fruited right up front, this is a touch dense and opaque on the palate but silky enough to remain interesting. A bit chewy with extract and tannin in the mouth, this slowly reveals layers of earth, dried herb, tree bark and wild berry flavors with spicy violet tinged top notes on the palate. Elegant and refined, I’m not sure it’s what I would look for from a Cotes du Rhone but this does deliver a lot of flavor and intensity at this price finishing with a blend of chocolate and herbs that lingers on the rich finish. 89pts

My immediate response to this wine is: why pay more? The robe is sombre (dark) - completely opaque, in point of fact. The nose is reminiscent of port-dipped tobacco, cola and brandy-infused maraschino cherry. Rather over the top description for a CdR - is it not? But the hyperbole doesn't stop there: the palate receives a full-force attack of the killer cherry-colas - a result, no doubt of this being a 100% Syrah wine! Exceptional in every way, this wine can spar with good wines in the 30-50 dollar range. Buy a case and have a party. Will age a couple of years with the tannin structure, but why bother?

The nose seemed to sway between fruit and earth, at first showing intense red berry, then pepper, herbal notes with fresh turned soil and a hint of bacon fat. Each time I put this to my nose, I seemed to find something slightly different. On the palate it was silky smooth yet juicy with dark cherry and black pepper. The finish was dry with palate coating tannin and a hint of perceptible heat. I’m interested in seeing where this may go with a year or two in the cellar.

AUD$20 at Vintage Cellars. Saint Cosme is probably more famous for their Gigondas and Grenache wines but the Cotes du Rhone is 100% syrah from Vinsobres and La Garde which marries fruit born to red clay and sandy limestone. Intense back ruby colour, with a complex aromatic profile of blackberry, used espresso grains and savoury hint of curry powder / curry leaf. Smooth velvet texture, a full-bodied wine with high acidity that is partially hidden by plush flavours of blackberry, black currant, hint of anise and minerality. Tannins are soft and even, resulting in a long tapering finish. Drink now – 2017.

Saint Cosme - located north to the village of Gigondas - is the most ancient estate in the region. The Saint Cosme s Chapel, located in the heart of our vineyard is a pure example of roman art.

Readers looking for a tank-fermented and aged, 100% Syrah bursting with blackberry fruit should check out the 2001 St. Cosme Côtes du Rhône. It possesses good acidity, loads of fruit, not a great deal of complexity, but considerable body, sweetness, and glycerine. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. A Syrah such as this from California would cost $35-$50!

With respect to Barruol's negociant line of wines, called Saint-Cosme, the very good 2008 Cotes du Rhone is primarily Syrah, much of it coming from such cool areas as Vinsobres. Attractive notes of creosote, blackberries, black currants, licorice, and truffles are followed by a medium-bodied, admirably textured wine with excellent fruit and definition. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

This dark and spicy 100% Syrah was made by Louis Barroul, a 14th-generation négociant-winemaker from Gigondas, in the southern Rhône. It captures the meaty, smoky majesty of far pricier red Rhônes, at least in the powerful, herb-infused bouquet. Grapey, spicy and front-loaded with fruit, the wine falls off in the finish, but by then you are well on your way to the next sip.
