Chateau St Cosme Cote Rotie 2009
Wine Advocate 94
"A fine wine, the 2009 Cote Rotie was made utilizing 100% stems, which is somewhat surprising, since the wine does not have any herbaceousness. Layered and dense ruby purple, this wine displays plenty of graphite, licorice, black raspberry and cassis notes, a full-bodied mouthfeel, striking complexity and elegance and a very long finish. Everything is in place, and the wine should evolve nicely for10-15+ years."

"Bright purple. Classic syrah aromas of cherry, boysenberry and violet, complicated by smoked meat, pipe tobacco and licorice. Vibrant and sweet, showing impressive depth to its dark fruit preserve, anise and floral flavors. Tangy acidity and silky tannins give lift and shape to the long, floral finish."
About Chateau Saint Cosme
In the heart of the appellation Gigondas, the Château de Saint Cosme is an exceptional estate, with its Gallo-Roman fermentation vats perfectly preserved. This fantastic historical site gives a good idea how our ancesters the gallo-romans were living. The property has been in our family since 1490 and we have been vignerons for 14 generations. We have 15 has of old vines (average 60 years old) with a yield of around 27Hos/Ha. The terroir is apparently homogeneous but it's actually geologically very diverse as the Dentelles de Montmirail makes it very complicated. Saint Cosme is exceptionally located at the crossing of two geological faults, which is very rare. This gives us an extraordinary diversity of soils. Our microclimate is cool and late ripening. Our Gigondas have the ability to be powerful and refined at the same time. The Saint Cosme's Chapel, located in the heart of our vineyard is a pure example of roman art. It was
built at the XI and XII century. Purity, balance and beauty: the Chapel is a witness of the medieval times and it gives an intense and special atmosphere to our vineyard.
Everyone should take five minutes to climb the little hill and visit it.
