Château de Saint-Cosme "Les Deux Albion" Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2013

$24.99

St Cosme is one of the Rhone Valley's hot up-and-coming producers. The Fantastic "Les Deux Albion" is basically declassified Gigondas at a fraction of the price.  Dont miss. 90 points Robert Parker:  "The 2013 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albions is 50-60% Syrah and the rest Grenache and other permitted varieties. It exhibits classic Syrah character with its sweet dark fruits, pepper, wood smoke and crushed rock-like minerality. Medium to full-bodied, it bucks the vintage stereotype and has a rounded, supple texture, good concentration and plenty of length. Possibly outstanding, it should have a decade of longevity."

Thanksgiving wine #1. Rich, bramble fruit, a touch of tannin. Alcohol seemed a little out of balance.

One of my favorite Rhone producers. Dark fruit, spice, meat. Very Northern Rhone, like a St. Joseph. Well balanced and excellent pair with pan seared skirt steak.

Smooth, rustic, and dangerously easy drinking. Not surprising given the old school wine making techniques, whole clusters are fermented and then macerated before 18 months in a concrete or oak vats prior to being bottled unfiltered. Dark berry and floral notes with hints of baking spices and smoked meat. Great showing.
