2012 Château de Saint Cosme, Côtes du Rhône,

From the “Genius of Gigondas” Louis Barrol…a baby Côte-Rôtie for under $20!

Our Impressions:
You would be hard pressed to find a Rhône Valley estate with a similar stable of utterly fantastic wines as that of Saint Cosme.  From the Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu in the north to Gigondas or Châteauneuf du Pape in the Southern Rhône, every wine is discussed as being one of the top wines of the vintage.  Not content with one Côtes du Rhône release Saint Cosme have decided on two. This big brother of the two could be described as the Rolls Royce of Côtes du Rhône wines or a baby Côte-Rôtie!  Usually, the Côtes du Rhône is 100% Syrah (unique for the region) the ‘Les Deux Albion’ is a bold and compelling fruit field blend of  Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Clairette Blanche which is all thrown in together and co-fermented.  

The result is a wine that is rich and full, yet harmonious. It is amazingly complex with flavors of ripe red berry fruits, cassis, middle eastern spice and  cracked pepper the list goes on and on! It even became more layered and deep as the day went on. An amazing wine with a price to match. We have had this wine with so many different foods, it has become our go to wine to take to new restaurants as we know it will pair perfectly with whatever we order. One to experience while we still have some in stock!

Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck, 91 Pts., Jan 2015:
" A wine that comes all from estate vineyards (mostly Plan de Dieu and Cairanne) since 2008, the 2012 Cotes du Rhône Les Deux Albions is mostly Grenache and Syrah, yet also includes a tiny amount of Clairette and other permitted varieties. It exhibits knockout notes of dark fruits, chocolate, smoked meats and pepper. This is followed by a ripe, textured and beautifully pure effort that has both richness and freshness. Drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years."

Winery Notes:
Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Clairette co-fermented.
Six weeks maceration. Full clusters. Clay slope (ancient alluviums), lime stony marl, rolling stones. Aged in wooden vats and concrete vats. `The “purchasing advisors” who criticized 2012 a bit too quickly will maybe have to re-think about their opinion. It looks like month after month that 2012 is, for the domaines which work well, an excellent vintage which won’t stop surprising us.

Its magnificent style recalls the great “cool” Gigondas wines. The superiority of 2012 relatively to 2011 becomes more obvious every day. Deux Albion 2012 is a perfect image of this reality: its texture and its depth recall the 2010. Co-fermented in concrete vats as usual, it develops a good density, good colour and a length that reminds of a great vintage. 80% of the cuvée was aged in concrete vat, which says a lot about the ability of the wines from our region to be “self-sufficient”.. In fact, this is in the concrete vats that Deux Albions gets the best expression. Its fruit full of terroir develops its own truth with freedom. The work of the vigneron is to understand what the best technical way for its terroir, and then add to his work a search of beauty. Bottled without any filtration.
