2007 Côtes du Rhône Saint Cosme (1.5L)

SKU #1045235

This unusual 100% Syrah cuvée is a favorite of two of my colleagues, Ralph Sands and Jim Chanteloup. Lots of plush, berried fruits, balanced by fine tannins and good acidity make this a delicious choice at the dinner table just about any night of the week. (Mulan Chan, K&L Rhone buyer) 90 points Robert Parker: "The 2007 Cotes du Rhone ,100% Syrah, reveals excellent notes of blackberries and charcoal, medium to full-bodied, opulent flavors, beautiful freshness and length, and no hard edges. Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years." (02/09) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Nice wild aromas of garrigue and olive give way to a silky palate of dark plum, loganberry and iron notes, with a long, fleshy finish. A nice character-filled wine. Drink now through 2010." (02/09)

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
