St.-Cosme Côtes du Rhône 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Two grape sources have composed this wine for many years now and one can't help but be impressed by the way they are consistant in quality whatever the vintage is. Vinsobres brings the freshness, the complexity, the strength and the balance. The "villafranchiennes terraces" from the Gard area (huge terraces of rolling stones) generate the color, the power, the generosity of a southern Syrah. In 2012, the wines are exceptional and this vintage shows notes of redcurrant, blackcurrant, licorice, and violet.
