Chateau de SAINT COSME, Gigondas
In our humble opinion, Louis Barruol is still the man for benchmark Gigondas. And after a few years of buying the grapes for the Deux Albion, Louis has finally bought the 3 hectare plot. The microclimate here is cool and late ripening.
The white Rhône: Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, plus a tickle of Picpoul de Pinet, giving textured, tropical bliss! The Gigondas has the ability to be both powerful and refined at the same time, and a Robert Parker rating of 96-100 for his Gigondas "Hominis Fides" 2010 has made the world wake up to this stellar producer.
