Saint Cosme Gigondas (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.
A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault aged for 12 months in a combination of 1-4 year old barrels ranging from 1-4 years old and (70%) and the remaining 30% of the wine is aged in neutral concrete vats. Grapes sourced from 25 different plots are co-fermented rather then blended after separate fermentation. The wine shines with aromas of ripe strawberries, raspberries, violet and white pepper. Full and balanced with well integrated tannins and a long finish.
