Winemaker Notes

Le Poste is a favourite wine at Saint Cosme. It is everything they like in wine - it is a wine of fruit and a wine to keep, a wine of complexity and an easy to understand one, a wine of structure and a wine of freshness. You'll find notes of Violet, almond, raspberry, and blackberry in this wine.

Critical Acclaim

WS 99
Wine Spectator
This manages to take a wide range of fruits—loganberry, raspberry, blackberry, plum and more—and melds them all together with a coulis feel that retains freshness and precision, while extra notes of iron, tobacco, charcoal and espresso expand through the finish. This has serious weight and depth, with massive structure, but also chiseled cut thanks to vivacious acidity. Amazing from start to finish. Best from 2015 through 2035.
RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A close rival will certainly turn out to be the 2010 Gigondas Le Poste, which comes from pure limestone soils, and in this case is aged in 50% new oak and 50% one-year-old barrels. Dense purple, it possesses loads of blueberry, blackberry and black currant fruit notes intermixed with some licorice, camphor, graphite and spring flowers. Full-bodied, with good acidity and a hint of lead pencil shavings in the mouth, oodles of black fruits cascade over the palate in this lavishly concentrated, extravagant Gigondas that is so overloaded. Give it 6-7 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25+ years.

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.

Gigondas Wine

Rhone, France

The Southern Rhone region of Gigondas extends northwest from the notably jagged wall of mountains called the Dentelles di Montmirail, whose highest point climbs to about 2,600 feet. The region and its wines have much in common with the neighboring Chateauneuf-du-Pape except that the vineyards of Gigondas exist at higher elevation and its soils, comprised mainly of crumbled limestone from the Dentelles, often produce a more dense and robust Grenache-based red wine.

The region has a history of fine winemaking, extending back to Roman times. But by the 20th century, Gigondas was merely lumped into the less distinct zone of Côtes du Rhône Villages. However, it was first among these satellite villages to earn its own appellation, which occurred in 1971.

Gigondas reds must be between 50 to 100% Grenache with Syrah and Mourvèdre comprising the bulk of the remainder of the blend. They tend express rustic flavors and aromas of wild blackberry, raspberry, fig, plum, as well as juniper, dried herbs, anise, smoke and river rock. The best are bold but balanced, and finish with impressively sexy and velvety tannins.

The Gigondas appellation also produces rosé but no white wines.
