    Winemaker's Notes:

    Flavors and aromas of mint, lavender, gingerbread, blackberry, violet, pepper. This wine deserves to be kept - it will get deeper and finer with cellaring.

    Blend: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 18% Mourvèdre and 2% Cinsault

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark, with terrific cut despite the heft of the roasted fig, baked plum, macerated black cherry and currant fruit, all pushed by sage, smoldering tobacco and singed apple wood notes. The muscular finish will need some cellaring to stretch out fully. Best from 2012 through 2020. 2,900 cases made.

    Wines sold under the Chateau Saint-Cosme label include the outstanding, pure, big 2009 Gigondas, a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre and 3% Cinsault aged 12 months in 1- to 4-year-old wood barrels (70%) and cement and wood tanks (30%). Its opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a massive concentration of black and red fruits intermixed with notions of crushed rocks, spring flowers, blueberries and black currants. The tannins are noticeable and the wine will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring. It should keep for 10+ years.
    Range: 90-92

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of cherry and cassis, with complicating notes of cracked pepper and licorice. Pliant and broad-shouldered, offering bitter cherry and candied violet flavors lifted by a spicy nuance. Packs a pretty serious punch for a basic wine and finishes with supple tannins and very good length.
