Gigondas France, 84190 View map

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." The Barruol's ancestors acquired it in 1570, and at the end of the sixteenth century built a splendid residence over existing cellars... – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Cotes du Rhone. It’s a surprisingly well known wine in a world where the wines people are generally more comfortable with come with varietal designations as opposed to regional ones. Sure there are Chianti, and Bordeaux, but how many other regional appellations are most people familiar with? And is there any other that is exclusively focused on ... Read More

  • St Cosme Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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, theres a diner in my glass. Big rich, and black fruited right up front, this is a t... Read More

  • Saint Cosme Saint-Joseph 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very earthy nose. Medium bodied on initial introduction to the mouth. Flavors seem to match earthiness of the nose. I cant think of a single fruit flavor that I might use to describe this. As a stretch I might suggest vegetative hints like bell pepper or asparagus. Quite tart as it passes towards the back of the palate. Read More

  • JD, the price.  Really, both the coudelet and the Chateau Neuf were extremely similar in taste and structure, I'd have a hard time telling them apart in a blind tasting but then again, that's my unsophisticated palate talking.Here's a bit more cool stuff:Beaucastel galets stones. Can't imagine how you could work the vines having to walk on these... Read More

  • Sorry, haven't been on here for a couple days so I thought it was time to catch up. Woke up Saturday morning and found ourselves in Marseilles where we're starting our next great wine adventure. First day was spent trying to get rid of the jet lag cobwebs so we took it easy, checked out Aix-en-Provence and then headed to the villa in St. Remy. D...

  • Chateau de Saint Cosme Vin de Pays d'Oc Little James' Basket Press Blanc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty nice French white blend of viognier and sauvignon blanc. The viognier comes through here with some floral notes and dried apricot. There's just a bit of zing from the sauvignon's acidity that plays well with the viognier. Very good QPR. Read More
