Winemaker's Notes:

"The non-oaked 2003 Cotes du Rhone blanc (30% Roussanne, 30% Viognier, 20% Marsanne, and the rest Picpoul and Bourboulenc) is a delicious 20,000-bottle cuvee filled with decadent levels of exotic fruits, medium body, and a dry, honeyed finish."

About Domaine de Saint Cosme:

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.
