  • 2009 Château de Saint-Cosme Gigondas – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Gigondas (2/10/2019)
    WIMLNR

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over 4 1/2 hours.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of Kirsch, tar and plum. Flavors of black cherries, berries and minerals. Medium acidity, medium tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink now. No rating. Seemed a bit over the hill or simply not performing as well as expected so withholding a rating.

  • 2015 Saint-Cosme Châteauneuf-du-Pape – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1/2/2019)
    WIML92

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of potpourri, plums and berries. Flavors of berries, cherries and plums. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied.. OK now with some air but I’d lean towards holding a few more years. Seems like it is just now emerging from a shutdown. (92 points)
