Château de Saint-Cosme "Les Deux Albion" Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2018

$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! 91 Points Wine Enthusiast: "This Syrah-dominant blend augmented by Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Clairette is sourced from three Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages communes of Plan de Dieu Saint Maurice and Cairanne. Vinified in wooden vats and matured in concrete, it offers decadent cassis and black-plum flavors accented by tar, charred sage and licorice. Supple and piercing, the wine is ready now but will hold through 2028." 90 Points Robert Parker: "Mainly Grenache, with smaller portions of Mourvèdre and Syrah, the St. Cosme 2018 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albions matured in wooden and concrete vats. Black cherries and blueberries mark the nose, picking up hints of garrigue and black olives along the way. Medium to full-bodied, plush and expansive, it turns almost velvety on the finish. It's another terrific bargain from Barruol."

Absolutely delicious! Pairs well with romaine lettuce salad and horsey braised short rib.

Tannin heavy, not much complexity or depth. A bit disappointing.

Jammy nose, round red fruit, hearty, lingering, a little bitterness and herbs on the back end.

Tres bon avec la pizza maison, les deux albions livre toujours la marchandise, peut-etre un brin cher pour une CDR mais il ne me déçoit rarement. Petits fruits noirs, poivre, herbal.
