Saint Cosme Condrieu (750ml)
Saint Cosme – located north to the village of Gigondas – is the most ancient estate in the region (evidence of a Gallo-Roman villa on the site date to 1416!). The diversity of soils and cool micro-climates encourages slow, even and late ripening of grapes. The dedication at Saint Cosme is total; they want to best express the extraordinary potential of the terroir. Years of experience, old vines and organic viticulture are also key contributing factors to the high quality of Saint Cosme wines and their elegant house style.
100% Viognier grown on granite soils and aged for 8 months in a combination of 20% new oak, 45% one year old and 35% two year old barrels. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation, though retains the necessary acidity to keep it fresh and balanced. It has an intense aromatic spectrum that is exotic and spicy and a rich and creamy mouthfeel. A wine coveted by foodies and chefs to pair perfectly with lobster, lightly spicy dishes and strong blue cheese.
