Château de Saint Cosme

About Château Saint Cosme

Château de Saint Cosme is a best-kept secret for many wine trade insiders, a hugely respected and historic Southern Rhône producer, the Barruol family have called the beautiful appellation of Gigondas home for nearly 500 years.

 

Lying just to the north of Gigondas village, Château de Saint Cosme is the oldest property in the entire appellation. Acquiring the ancient site in 1570, the Barroul family began construction of the splendid château shortly after. Louis Barroul took up the mantle of 13 previous generations of winemakers at his family producer in 1992, and has become firmly established as one of the regions most talented and respected winemakers.

 

Louis is aided in no small part by the utterly unique and exquisite terroir of Château de Saint Cosme, which is quite rightly the envy of all other Gigondas producers. Located between two geological faults, the soil compositions and variations are like a patchwork of potential each giving life to slightly different characteristics in the vines planted there. The estate Gigondas is a blend of very old vines from three plots: Le Poste, Le Claux and Hominis Fides.

Saint Cosme Cotes-du-Rhone 2018 (6x150cl)

Wine Advocate (90)

The 2018 Cotes du Rhone is 100% Syrah, sourced from the Gard (on the right bank of the Rhône) and Vinsobres (left bank, higher elevation). Violets, black olives and cassis and blueberry flavors provide terrific varietal expression in a medium to full-bodied package framed by silky tannins. Depending on your local pricing (I've seen it for as little as $12.99 or as much as $20), it should be a terrific value.

Saint Cosme Gigondas 2019 (6x75cl)

Decanter (94)

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%).

Saint Cosme Gigondas Hominis Fides 2017 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (96-99)

My favorite of the single vineyard cuvées in 2017 is the Gigondas Hominis Fides, which comes from a vineyard just across the street from Le Claux. It has a killer nose of exotic flowers, freshly crushed rocks, new saddle leather, flowers, spice, and violets. Possessing full-bodied richness, an incredibly sexy, seamless, yet powerful style, and an awesome finish, it’s unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage.

Wine Advocate (96)

Probably my favorite of the single vineyard releases (although, truthfully, I find the quality among the three almost indistinguishable), the 2012 Gigondas Le Claux has beautiful minerality to go with notions of black fruits, smoked herbs, graphite and liquid violets. A big, full-bodied Gigondas, it never puts a foot wrong, has building, polished tannin and a blockbuster finish that stays focused. Give it a couple years and enjoy bottles through 2032.

Wine Advocate (93)

Another wine that doesn’t lack for structure, the 2013 Gigondas Le Claux (99% Grenache and 1% Syrah) offers lots of camphor, graphite, ground pepper and limestone-like minerality to go with a medium to full-bodied, very fresh, focused and elegant style on the palate. As with the Hominis Fides, it shows more tannic grip with time in the glass, and will benefit from short term cellaring.

Saint Cosme Gigondas Le Claux 2017 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (98)

Just about perfection in a glass, the 2017 Gigondas Le Claux got a few expletives in my notes. Made from 100% Grenache from a loamy, limestone parcel that’s a stone’s throw from the estate, just outside the village, it boasts a deep purple color as well as stunning notes of kirsch, cassis, camphor, dried earth, ground pepper, and background oak. Deep, powerful, full-bodied and multi-dimensional on the palate, this blockbuster Gigondas is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age (or more) and cruise for two decades in cool cellars.

Everything about the all-Grenache 2018 Gigondas le Claux is big. From the huge black cherry and blackberry fruit, to the insane levels of concentration, the rich, velvety tannins and the never-ending, licorice-tinged finish, this beauty should evolve positively for at least a decade and a half.
