Château de Saint-Cosme Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2010

$41

St Cosme is one of the Rhone Valley's hot up-and-coming producers and the new Gigondas is fantastic - limited. 95 points Wine Spectator:  "This is jam-packed with dark blackberry, currant and boysenberry fruit, but cuts like a knife, thanks to riveting acidity, a blaze of singed iron and a long, charcoal-studded finish. A lovely lingering note of singed bay leaf adds a mouthwatering echo. Best from 2015 through 2030."95 points Robert Parker:  "The black/purple 2010 Gigondas, which in this year is a blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre and the rest Cinsault, has loads of sweet blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with camphor, barbecue smoke and scorched earth. Lots of tannin, very good acidity, and a massive mouthfeel make for a real vin de garde for Louis Barruol’s 2010 Gigondas. This wine will need 3-4 years of cellaring and keep for at least 15"

Another monthly WTF Group meet up. Northern Rhône vs Southern Rhône, blind as usual. In a group of 8 guys, what are the chances this wine is brought twice? Weston and I both ended up bringing this wine, albeit in different groups. I decanted this for a little under two hours and that was without a doubt the sweetspot. Most confused this for northern Rhône based on texture, but it still had a significant amount of black pepper in comparison to the Guigal it was poured alongside.

Just so enjoyable tonight, with an elegant structure, savory aromatics, and a sharp mineral-driven finish. An old world treat to end a day of new world wines. (Post Peter Michael Winery dinner)

Oldest producer in Gigondas. Great value alternative for any fans of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Tasty stuff.

Nice and fresh with tannins waiting to round up. Worth trying in 5 years.

Meaty and so, so Rhone. Great for the first day of winter with snow.

What wine is a 92 after 20 minutes of cork pop? What wine is a 94 with a chicken green chili, poblano and jalapeno pepper soup? THIS. Slight hint of aged brambleberry and fig on the nose. Entry is fig dominated without food and more of a black cherry with the food. After an hour, this one actually seemed to get more youthful with or without any acoutrement. Hint of truffle to the finish. Nice wine. Two more and I'm actually amazed I was able to time consuming this case rather well! Should drink nicely for the next 5 to 7 years.

Delicious gigondas in its prime. Earth tones, rustic splendor, nose of dark fruit and violets. Pepper. Long finish, terrific structure. Splendid.
