From Tuscany yesterday to the Southern Rhone today, we're thinking European vacation...
And looking into our crystal ball at aWine Spectator Top 100 shoe-in: Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas 2015, with95 pointsand under $35. The score hit this morning so we're getting in at the right time. Have at it! Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas 2015
$34.15 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($37.95 regular)
95 points Wine Spectator:"A textbook version of the brawny side of Gigondas, this offers a grippy alder bass line underneath layers of dark currant and fig fruit, while lots of tobacco, rosemary and bay fill in throughout. Muscular and energetic, this is built for the cellar. Best from 2019 through 2030."
From 60 year-old vines within one of the Southern Rhone's top estates comes this Grenache-hearted beauty. Plenty of balance and complexity to go with the muscle, you can decant for a couple hours and enjoy with a hearty meal but we recommend a couple years or more of age.
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
