Ch. de Saint Cosme
Gigondas - 2019 Rhone En Primeur

Chateau de Saint Cosme has been in the Barruol family since 1490, with 14 generations of wine-making tradition. That said, Louis Barruol is far from resting on his laurels. This is the leading estate of the region and has been instrumental in raising the image of the whole appellation, to the point where it competes with and often exceeds the quality of more famous neighbour, Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The latest release is potentially the best yet.

ETA May 2021

2019 Gigondas

90 Bot @ £160 per 6 Bot Case, in bond
£208.07 duty & VAT paid

Starting off the 2019 barrel samples, the 2019 Gigondas reveals a deeper ruby/plum color to go with a rich, powerful, medium to full-bodied and concentrated style that carries lots of classic dark fruits, ground pepper, and scorched earth-like aromas and flavors. This rich, dense 2019 will reward 3-5 years of bottle age and have two decades of prime drinking.
93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Great sense of concentration and vibrancy with acidity that is marked for the vintage and the oak well integrated. Extremely vibrant, dark fruited this year, damson, shot through with very fine tannins. All whole bunch fermented in concrete with natural yeasts, then aged in concrete, recently used barriques and some new ones (around 20%). 2022 - 2032
94 points Matt Walls, Decanter

Always one of my favorite tastings in the Rhône is with Château de Saint Cosme’s Louis Barruol and this feisty, talented, and passionate vigneron makes some of the best wines in France. The estate is located just outside the village of Gigondas and the lineup has been simplified today to include a classic Gigondas and three single vineyards. The wines are all made in the same fashion, with no destemming and aging in just about 100% used barrels, so what you get is a clean expression of each of the vineyards. Looking at the 2018s, these are undoubtedly more plush, soft, charming wines, yet they are still going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and should evolve beautifully. The 2019s look to be on another level, and my money is on this being another truly special vintage from this estate. These are gorgeous wines across the board, and I certainly have plenty in my personal cellar.
