Ratings and Reviews

Saint Cosme's 2018 Gigondas is a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 14% Syrah and 1% Cinsault, aged in a combination of new and used oak, with 30% of the volume matured in concrete. Full-bodied and generous, it's round and supple, with no hard edges to hamper the easy flow of asphalt, red raspberries and black cherries across the palate. Boasting ample but not excessive concentration, it's a lovely, seductive example of Gigondas to enjoy over the next decade or so.

Joe Czerwinski - Wine Advocate 93

Moving to the wines from bottle, the base Gigondas from this estate is a perennial winner and readers can safely buy bottles of this in just about every vintage. Giving up a Provençal bouquet of red and black currants, peppery herbs, leather, and loamy soil, the 2018 is medium to full-bodied, has a forward, sexy style, no hard edges, and a great finish. It’s terrific today yet still has enough tannins to evolve for 10-15 years if you’re so inclined.

Staff Notes

I'm quite sure you've tried some wines from the ever-charming Louis Barroul. St. Cosme has become one of the "blue chip" names in the Southern Rhone and the 2018 version of his flagship wine is a winner. Dark and brooding, but not too heavy-this wines exemplifies what can come from the special place known as Gigondas
