[ Home > Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas 2009 ]|
67% Grenache - 20% Syrah – 12% Mourvèdre - 1% Cinsault Aged for twelve months: 70% in 1 to 4 years old barrels, 15% in wooden vats, 15% in concrete vats. Co-fermenting has been more interesting than ever: grenache-minerality, mourvèdre-muscles, cinsaut-blandness, syrah-crispness.
"This is fleshy and forward, with lots of tasty dark plum, licorice, spice cake and fig sauce notes. The lush, inviting finish has nice latent grip. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2010." -Rated 90, Wine Spectator
"The 2005 Gigondas exhibits soft berry fruit intermixed with some licorice and roasted herbs in a soft but well-delineated, medium to full-bodied style. The wine has beautiful ripeness and shows none of the dilution or hard tannins that often plague so many producers in Gigondas. This is a beauty to drink over the next 7-10 years." -Rated 90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
