Winemaker Notes

On the palate, it reveals a fresh attack followed by an ample, structured, long-lasting finish. The wine unfurls in successive stages and ends with top-quality tannins produced by whole cluster fermentation. It features aromas and flavors of smoked ham, violet, graphite, graphite, and licorice.

Syrah, with its deep flavors and firm tannins, is a natural match for grilled or smoked meat and dishes featuring herbs, roasted mushrooms, and onions. Seared venison or beef with black pepper and thyme or a Moroccan tagine of pigeon or chicken are complimented by the spicy characteristic of Syrah.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Côte-Rôtie comes all from the Côte Brune side of the appellation, which is all schist soils. Fermented with no destemming and aged mostly in older barrels, it’s a rock star Côte-Rôtie and offers loads of blackberry fruits, spice, tapenade, cured meats, and pepper. With medium to full body, a deep, layered mid-palate, present tannins, and a huge finish, it needs short-term cellaring but is an undeniably gorgeous Syrah that will have two decades of longevity.

Ripe, dark, raspberries and strawberries with toasted spices. This has a more modern edge and a heap of perfume with wild herbs. Fine and elegant tannins are steeped in a wealth of rich fruit and wild herbs that infuse the fresh, lively finish. From organically grown grapes.

Wine Spectator
Dark plum and blackberry fruit takes on a lightly mulled edge while anise, roasted apple wood and racy bay leaf notes fill in the background, adding cut and drive. Youthfully vibrant and balanced for the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2035.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of Syrah from the lieux-dits of le Plomb, Besset, la Viallière and Neve, Saint Cosme's 2016 Cote Rotie was fermented using whole clusters and aged in (mostly) used barrels. It's a sexy, supple Côte Rôtie, with notes of hickory smoke, wood ash and bacon balanced by lush dark-fruit flavors. Slurp it down it over the next 7-8 years while waiting for some of the more tannic examples of the appellation to mature.

Chateau de Saint Cosme Château de Saint Cosme Vineyard Winery Image

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.
