France
Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah
Red Wine
Aged for twelve months : 70% in 1 to 4 years old barrels. The co-fermentation of the different grapes together is a technic that has been used for a long time at Saint Cosme, with good results. In 2011, the co-fermentation was not only a choice for quality, it was a matter of necesity to get good fermentations and balanced wines. The vintages can be compared but all of them have their own character.

Wine Spectator Notes : The bay leaf, alder and tobacco notes are well-defined, with a core of steeped plum, blackberry and black currant fruit sitting in reserve. Offers lots of briary grip and a long singed iron edge on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Robert Parker Notes : The classic 2011 Gigondas is a serious effort that gets you a good bit of the class and richness found in the upper, single vineyard cuvees, yet for a lot less buck. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah, it gives up toasty, spice-driven notes of blackberries, ground pepper and cured meats that flow to a medium to full-bodied, textured and layered effort that has notable freshness and sweet tannin. It will shine for over a decade and represents an excellent value.

Tasting Notes : Mourvedre and Syrah played a crucial role : they kept the Grenache down. They brought the roundness and the meatiness which make a real Gigondas. As usual, time will tell what is the real quality level of this vintage but the quality of the fruit, the association between power and freshness make us think that it is a good one, especially for the late ripening terroirs. Ginger bread, strawberry, raspberry, white pepper. Bottled without filtration.
