Saint Cosme Cotes-du-Rhone (750ml)
Saint Cosme – located north to the village of Gigondas- is the most ancient estate in the region. There is even 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.
This Cote du Rhone is 100% Syrah rather than a blend of grapes. The nose opens with a lovely floral violet, followed by dark berries, tobacco and charcoal notes. The palate echoes the nose and there is a pleasing grip on the finish. This is a well structured Cote du Rhone, with excellent purity of fruit and vibrancy.
The peppery components of this 100% Syrah based Côtes du Rhône pairs well with spicy BBQ and grilled meats, roast pork and aged, hard cheeses.
