Chateau de Saint Cosme Chateauneuf du Pape
Another beautiful Rhone wine from Saint Cosme. Their Châteauneuf-du-Pape comes from three climats, the most famous of which is the plateau of La Crau with its distinctive galets over clay, bringing power and structure to the blend. The climats of Valori and Christia are on sandy soils, giving the wine its perfume and freshness. The wine is a blend of Grenache Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Cinsaut, made with whole cluster fermentation from indigenous yeasts, is aged for 24 months in old 228-liter barrels, and bottled without fining or filtration. This wine is getting 95 points from Wine Spectator who says: "This has a little sauvage note peeking out, with bay leaf and game accents adding range to the rich core of crushed plum and blackberry fruit." and 92 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. These are retailing for $54.99. We were only able to score a case, you can place a hold using the button below.
