Chateau Saint Cosme

View all from Chateau Saint Cosme
Chateau Saint CosmeIn the heart of the appellation Gigondas, the Ch√Ęteau 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.

Great wine ideosyncratic label

"Don't be deceived by the label. An excellent wine at the price point. Aged by the solera process, combining older with newer presses, this is a fine blend from a chateau know fror high quality. The spectrum of flavor its makes it a go-to wine for every day meals."
