    Winemaker's Notes:

    "By the way, 2002 is a horrendous vintage in the southern Rhone. I do not say that lightly, because there are some producers who made very competent wines, but my scores for that vintage tended to plateau at 87-88. However, one of the top 2002s is the Chateau St.-Cosme 2002 Gigondas, a wine that I rated 88. Tasty and sexy with fine ripeness, it reveals no signs of dilution or greenness."
    -Wine Advocate St. Cosme's (pronounced "comb") Gigondas displays superb balance between fruit and frame-between its ripe, spicy grapeyness and tannin structure. The blend consists roughly of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Cinsaut. The Grenache gives fat, fleshy fruit; Syrah gives dark color, grip, spice and black fruit; while Cinsaut gives perfume. This excellent, well-constituted wine will warm your bones.
