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: 14.5%

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

Flavors and aromas of mint, lavender, gingerbread, blackberry, violet, pepper. This wine deserves to be kept - it will get deeper and finer with cellaring.

Blend: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 18% Mourvèdre and 2% Cinsault

Critical Acclaim

"Dark, with terrific cut despite the heft of the roasted fig, baked plum, macerated black cherry and currant fruit, all pushed by sage, smoldering tobacco and singed apple wood notes. The muscular finish will need some cellaring to stretch out fully. Best from 2012 through 2020. 2,900 cases made."
93 Points

"Wines sold under the Chateau Saint-Cosme label include the outstanding, pure, big 2009 Gigondas, a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre and 3% Cinsault aged 12 months in 1- to 4-year-old wood barrels (70%) and cement and wood tanks (30%). Its opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a massive concentration of black and red fruits intermixed with notions of crushed rocks, spring flowers, blueberries and black currants. The tannins are noticeable and the wine will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring. It should keep for 10+ years.
Range: 90-92"
92 Points

"Bright ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of cherry and cassis, with complicating notes of cracked pepper and licorice. Pliant and broad-shouldered, offering bitter cherry and candied violet flavors lifted by a spicy nuance. Packs a pretty serious punch for a basic wine and finishes with supple tannins and very good length."

Learn About Saint Cosme Map ItMap It

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.

Learn About Gigondas

(jhee-gon-dahs) The muscleman of the Southern Rhone, Gigondas is situated right under the rugged, rocky range of the Dentelles de Montmirail - a sign of the rustic, edgy flavor found in wines from the area. The region, once a Cotes-du-Rhone village, earned its own appellation in 1971. Producing reds and roses, Gigondas creates top quality reds sometimes rivaling its...

Learn About Grenache

Grenache (greh-NAASH) Sun-Worshiper This sun-worshiping grape gets ripe and loves hot, dry weather. Popular in Spain (called Garnacha), Australia and the southern Rhone region of France, Grenache is the primary grape in regions such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Tavel, and Priorat.
