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."

Dark berries with wood and a little dust. Medium body with firm tannins that lend a nice dryness to the wine. The acidity here gives good definition and completes a well-balanced structure. I have to say I would like this wine to have a little more spice to it like some previous vintages from Saint Cosme have had, but this is still a well made Cotes du Rhone.

Great example for a very good price. Nice earthy minerality and a hint of spice. Anise and musty blackberry notes. The fruit is quite minimal. Finishes clean with a relatively light but elegant body. A geat lunchtime red!

aromas of currants, blackberries, cocoa, dark rich fruit on the palate with a peppery, zesty finish, rich and full bodied but an elegance to it and terrific balance of tannins, acidity, and flavor components.

I was not as impressed with the 2007 as I was with the 2005. Still this wine is very enjoyable and unique. Medium mouthfeel with a very familiar black pepper aroma. Notes of earth, cassis, and black pepper but not nearly the spice of the early vintage (2005). Backgrounds of dark berry fruits and tame tannins. Very good with food. I will keep trying different vintages of this Syrah.

    A great bargain. There is little else to hope for when it is less than $13.00 a bottle.

    The 2007 Gigondas possesses a dense purple color in addition to a stunning bouquet of charcoal, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, acacia flowers, and a hint of chalk. Full-bodied with terrific fruit intensity, a layered texture, gorgeous freshness, and acids that provide a well-defined personality to this blockbuster Gigondas. Despite its size, substance, and depth, the overall impression is one of sublime elegance and purity. Enjoy it over the next 10-12 years. Wine Advocate, # 185 Oct 2009, Robert Parker

    Medium to full-bodied, ripe, fresh, elegant, and powerful, with pepper, tapenade, cassis, and olive characteristics dominating its explosive, aromatic nose, the dark ruby/purple-tinged, medium to full-bodied 2007 Cote Rotie is extraordinarily pungent... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Chateau de Saint Cosme Cote Rotie 750ml

    Nice wild aromas of garrigue and olive give way to a silky palate of dark plum, loganberry and iron notes, with a long, fleshy finish. A nice character-filled wine. Drink now through 2010. 1,500 cases imported.
