Description

The 2015 Saint Cosme Gigondas was rated 95 points and ranked as the #5 Wine of the Year – Top 100 Wine Spectator 2017.  The 2016 was awarded the same 95 point rating again by Wine Spectator.  Now we await the very limited 2017.

The 2016 Saint Cosme Gigondas goes back-to-back with another fantastic 95 point rating by Wine Spectator – “Perfumy and stylish, with rooibos tea, blood orange and cherry aromas and flavors weaving through, infused with sandalwood, anise, bay leaf, sage and pepper notes along the way. A very fine and persistent chalky spine supports it all. Best from 2020 through 2035.” – November 31, 2018 edition
