Winemaker Notes

This inky black, fabulously concentrated Cote Rotie comes from three separate vineyards (Grandes Places, Bourrier and Rozier) on the Cote Brune. In the glass the wine reveals a stunning perfume of pain grille, violets and cassis. On the palate there is a superb purity of rich black fruits intertwined with soft, ripe tannins.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1999 Cote Rotie, is a blend of purchased wine from such well-known hillside vineyards as Les Roziers, Les Grandes Places, Viaillere, and Champin. This 500-case cuvee of 100% Syrah, offers a classic perfume of bacon fat, licorice, smoked herbs, tapenade, blackberries, and creme de cassis. This wine possesses an unctuous texture as well as fabulous ripeness, adequate acidity, and sweet, unobtrusive tannin. It should drink well for 15+ years. It is a brilliant Cote Rotie!

Chateau de Saint Cosme is the leading estate of Gigondas and produces the appellation’s benchmark wines. Wine has been produced on the site of Saint Cosme since Roman times, evident by the ancient Gallo-Roman vats carved into the limestone below the chateau. The property has been in the hands of Louis Barruol’s family since 1570. Henri and Claude Barruol took over in 1957 and gradually moved Saint Cosme away from the bulk wine business. Henri was one of the first in the region to work organically beginning in the 1970s. Louis Barruol took over from his father in 1992, making a dramatic shift to quality, adding a négociant arm to the business in 1997, and converting to biodynamics in 2010.

Cote Rotie Wine

Rhone, France

View all products

The cultivation of vines here began with Greek settlers who arrived in 600 BC. Its proximity to Vienne was important then and also when that city became a Roman settlement but its situation, far from the negociants of Tain, led to its decline in more modern history. However the 1990s brought with it a revival fueled by one producer, Marcel Guigal, who believed in the zone’s potential. He, along with the critic, Robert Parker, are said to be responsible for the zone’s later 20th century renaissance.

Where the Rhone River turns, there is a build up of schist rock and a remarkable angle that produces slopes to maximize the rays of the sun. Cote Rotie remains one of the steepest in viticultural France. Its varied slopes have two designations. Some are dedicated as Côte Blonde and others as Côte Brune. Syrahs coming from Côte Blonde are lighter, more floral, and ready for earlier consumption—they can also include up to 20% of the highly scented Viognier. Those from Côte Brune are more sturdy, age-worthy and are typically nearly 100% Syrah. Either way, a Cote Rotie is going to have a particularly haunting and savory perfume, expressing a more feminine side of the northern Rhone.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
