Product Overview

The 2019 Château de Saint Cosme Les Deux Albion Cotes du Rhone Rouge is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre, and Clairette from the three Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages communes of Plan de Dieu, Saint Maurice, and Cairanne. The whole clusters are co-fermented with indigenous yeasts and vinified in conical wooden vats and concrete tanks for 18 months. The wine combines depth, structure, and finesse with aromas and flavors of garrigue, thyme, tar, gingerbread, and violet.

Of this wine, owner and winemaker Louis Barruol writes, "The estate's team and I recently re-tasted the 2004 vintage – it was delicious and most importantly, in fine fettle. We should put an end to the image of Côtes du Rhône as being the basic, early-drinking bistro wine once and for all. When the wines are grown on superior vineyard sites and carefully vinted, this image is untrue. I remain a firm believer in the propensity of the Rhone to produce great wines at affordable prices. This is our region's history, it's part of its genetic make-up and out of respect for who we are, we must continue to impress our customers."
