Chateau de Saint Cosme is without doubt one of the very best producers in France, let alone the Southern Rhone. The winery dates back to 1490 and owns some of the oldest vines in the region.
Winemaker, Louis Barruol's family have owned the estate for generations but it is only under his guidance that it has started to fulfil its true potential.
Grapes: 50% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault.
Region: France / Southern Rhone / Gigondas
Maker: Louis Barruol
Notes: This Gigondas is concentrated, with good structure and great tannins that will guarantee long ageing. Characters of mint, lavender, gingerbread, blackberry, violet and pepper, are all very prominent and held together with this underlying balance and acidity.
Serve: At 16-18c with red meat dishes, stews and strong cheeses
