    Winemaker's Notes:

    Mourvedre and Syrah played a crucial role in this 2011 vintage - they brought the roundness and the meatiness which make a real Gigondas. The quality of the fruit, the association between power, and freshness make this a great vintage. There are notes of gingerbread, strawberry, raspberry, and white pepper.

    Blend: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 18% Mourvedre, 2% Cinsault

    Critical Acclaim:

    The bay leaf, alder and tobacco notes are well-defined, with a core of steeped plum, blackberry and black currant fruit sitting in reserve. Offers lots of briary grip and a long singed iron edge on the finish.

    Under the Chateau Saint-Cosme umbrella, the 2011 Gigondas (a 3,400-case blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as powerful blueberry, mulberry, black currant, licorice, graphite and truffle notes. This round, generously endowed, surprisingly deep and full 2011 ...

    Deep ruby. Vibrant raspberry and strawberry scents are complicated by notes of dried lavender and Asian spices. Racy, pure red fruit flavors show very good depth and appealing sweetness. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering spiciness. This wine should drink well soon after release thanks to its lively fruit and gentle tannins.
    Range: 90-92
