Background:
In the heart of the appellation Gigondas, the Château de Saint Cosme is an exceptional estate, with its Gallo-Roman fermentation vats perfectly preserved. The property has been family-owned since 1490 with 14 generations of "vignerons".
Tasting notes:
Its palate is structured yet fresh which tends to remind me somewhat of a Barolo. After the more classic 2012, you will discover a slightly unique Châteauneuf in a style we won’t see again for a while. Fruits in brandy, gingerbread, garrigue, Christmas cake, undergrowth, truffle and olive paste. Bottled without filtering.
