Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Very well balanced, it is a typical example of my Côte-Rôtie grown on schistes. This is a vintage to follow carefully. Notes of chimney soot, bacon, violet, graphite, cold ash and ancient roses.

Critical Acclaim

"A dark, gutsy style, with lots of briary grip supporting the black olive, singed bay leaf, mulled black currant and macerated blackberry fruit. Terrific aromatics are slowly emerging, and the sweet tapenade-filled finish is long and mouthwatering. Built for the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2027."
95 Points

"Vivid purple. Pungent, spice- and floral-accented aromas of black and blue fruits and licorice, with a peppery topnote. Sappy, incisive and pure, offering intense black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that put on weight in the glass. Shows excellent clarity and power on the finish, which features silky tannins and zesty minerality. Most of this fruit was sourced from Vialliere, according to Barruol."
93 Points

"Several of the 2010s to look for in a year or so include Louis Barruol’s 2010 Cote-Rotie, which possesses plenty of black olive, black raspberry and cassis fruit, with hints of Christmas fruitcake, incense, and an almost exotic Asian spice note. Drink it over the next 15 years.
Range: 90-92+"

Louis Barruol is the 14th generation Barruol to make wine at Saint Cosme. The Chateau was built in the late 16th Century on the site of a former Roman villa, and the remains of a Roman wine cellar, carved into the stone of the hillside, still exist in the chateau's caves. There are 37 acres of vineyards and the vines average 60 years of age. The old plots (pictured on the Gigondas label) and stitch across the escarpment of the ragged Dentelles de Montmirail, an oft-painted mountain range.
