Winemaker's Notes

50% Grenache – 30% Mourvèdre – 10% Syrah – 10% Cinsault. Aged for 24 mths. in 2 to 4 years old barrels. Without a doubt, it's the best Chateauneuf ever made at Saint Cosme since 2001. These vines are managed organically; that gives it such purity. This bottle will evolve well because the 07 brings balance, which is important for a long-life wine. Truffle, Tapenade, garrigue, cherries, gingerbread.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape, which Barruol purchases from select vignerons, is dominated by Grenache, but it includes at least 30% Mourvedre and a small quantity of Cinsault. A dense purple color is accompanied by a ripe nose of red and black fruits, Christmas fruitcake, spice box, garrigue, and pepper. Rich and full-bodied with moderate tannin, good acidity, and a layered, intense mouthfeel, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring, and should age for 15+ years. "
94 Points

"Bright purple. Exotically perfumed bouquet of black raspberry, potpourri and smoky Indian spices. Lush, creamy, expansive red and dark berry preserve flavors are complemented by notes of allspice and anise, with supple tannins gaining strength on the back end. A kick of zesty spices lends energy and thrust to the finish, but this seamless wine is delicious already."

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.

(shah-too-NUHF due Pahp) Southern Rhone's landmark region, Chateauneuf du Pape, was the first region to gain AC status in France. That was the 1920s - it's history goes much further back than that. As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome. Notable Facts...
