Product Overview

The 2019 Saint Cosme Saint-Joseph is produced from 100% Sérine, an ancient and local variety of Syrah that is markedly different from modern selections. It is more oval, with lots of space in the bunch, resulting in a very aromatic wine. It is sourced from the climat Malleval in the northern part of the appellation near Condrieu. The wine is made from 70% destemmed with 30% whole clusters, fermented with indigenous yeasts, and aged in 20% new 228-liter barrels. The microclimate of the vineyard Malleval is described as very cold, and this allows the grapes to retain acidity and showcase the floral aromas of the local Sérine variety. Aromas and flavors of blackberries and wild strawberries are accented by notes of peppercorns, tobacco, peonies, and violets.

Varietal Composition: 100% Serine (ancient variety of Syrah)
Appellation: Saint-Joseph AOC
Vineyard: Malleval
Aging: 12 months in French oak, 20% new
Winemaker: Louis Barruol

"Saint Cosme's 2019 Saint Joseph features alluring scents of baking spices, roasted meat, black cherries and black olives—it's a lovely, aromatic offering. In the mouth, it's medium to full-bodied, silky and fine, with those ripe tannins and balanced acids imparting a sense of freshness and vitality that persists through the elegant finish. Sourced from granite terroirs at the northern end of the appellation, it's easily the equal of some producers' Côte Rôties." -JC, 5/13/21
