St Cosme 2015 in the Wine Spectator

"Louis Barruol's Château de St.-Cosme leads the way in Gigondas" James Molesworth

Wine Spectator Insider – August 16, 2017

CHÂTEAU DE SAINT COSME Condrieu 2015 – 94 points

“Rich, but showing good tension and focus, with a bitter orange note helping the peach, nectarine, yellow apple and quince flavors zip along, while light verbena and honeysuckle details chime in on the brioche-accented finish.”

Wine Spectator Insider – August 9, 2017

CHÂTEAU SAINT COSME Gigondas Valbelle 2015 – 96 points

“This is packed with rich, succulent flavors of fig, boysenberry and blackberry compote, layered with anise, ganache and toasted apple wood notes. The strong, grippy spine is well-embedded through the lengthy finish, while the fruit easily keeps pace.”

CHÂTEAU SAINT COSME Gigondas 2015 – 95 points “A textbook version of the brawny side of Gigondas, this offers a grippy alder bass line underneath layers of dark currant and fig fruit, while lots of tobacco, rosemary and bay fill in throughout. Muscular and energetic, this is built for the cellar.”

Wine Spectator Insider “Hot Wines” – August 9, 2017

CHÂTEAU SAINT COSME Gigondas Le Poste 2015 – 98 points

“This sports a core of dark fig, blackberry and red currant paste, along with notes of tar, lavender, roasted juniper and tobacco. Shows heft and drive, yet remains remarkably refined, offering a long, precise chalk spine that runs from start to finish. A deft combination of power and elegance.”

CHÂTEAU SAINT COSME Gigondas Hominis Fides 2015 – 97 points

“This has a packed core of red and black currant preserves and crushed plum fruit, inlaid liberally with lavender, juniper, bay and tobacco notes. Lots of grippy bittersweet cocoa and licorice root accents score the finish, which is seriously long. A brick house.”

CHÂTEAU SAINT COSME Gigondas Le Claux 2015 – 97 points

“Dark and dense, with a baker’s chocolate frame around an immense core of crushed plum, warm fig and boysenberry reduction flavors, while the back end brims with roasted apple wood, warm tar and licorice root notes. Will take some time to fully meld.”
