Château de Saint-Cosme "Les Deux Albion" Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2016

$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 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."

Still a baby. From magnum. Needed 4 hours of air. Some dark fruit surrounded by some stone fruit, a bit of creaminess (in a good way), a hint of pepper, maybe anise. Will wait on the other bottles for many years. Great value.

From a magnum - excellent fruit, bright but still nice weight. Was still a little tight , suspect it mellows in a year or two. Night 2 not has good. Garagiste selection. 89 with room to grow to 91 in due time.

2016 better than 2015. Awesome weekly drinker. Medium to heavy body, dark fruits. First wine in the new house.

Easy drinking , earthy and smooth. This is a great value everyday wine. Surprised to find out after checking the label that it was 14.5 abv because you couldn’t tell. A little spice, leather , mushrooms and plum . Needs a good 30 minutes in the decanter. I am looking forward to trying out the other wines from this chateau.

Slight fruit on the front, mostly earthy and chewy from a healthy level of tannin.

Simply wow and just for 10 euros. It’s not a Gigondas AOP but still gorgeous.
