While the 2019 Cotes du Rhone is not a single-estate wine (it's labeled simply Saint Cosme, without the "Château de"), this 100% Syrah is a perennial bargain - and this could be its best vintage to date. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Aromas of violets, cracked pepper, cassis and blueberries.

Palate: The medium to full-bodied palate is ripe but silky.

Finish: A long, mouthwatering finish.

Under the watchful eye of Louis Barruol, Château de Saint Cosme is arguably the best estate in Gigondas, and perhaps even one of the finest in the Southern Rhône. Château de Saint Cosme (pronounced ‘san comm’) has been in Barruol’s family since 1590 – spanning 14 generations of wine growers – and is planted to 15 hectares of old vines with an average age of around 60 years. Quite incredibly, part of the cellars were built by the Romans in the year 100 A.D. Barruol has uncovered 25 vats carved out of stone for winemaking. What’s most important to Barruol is that the vines are cared for and remain in good health. In the cellar, even against the backdrop of such rich history and tradition, he has not been averse to innovation, incorporating ideas from other regions.
