About This Wine...
Saint Cosme is the most ancient estate in the region, owned by the Barruol family since 1490 and located at the crossing of two geological faults, giving extraordinary diversity of soils. The microclimate here is cool and grapes ripen late in the season. All farming has been organic since 1972. The wines are made to express their terroir with purity and personality with great ageing ability.
Awards and Reviews
- 2013 Vintage – ‘Outstanding wine from a difficult vintage; spicy, warm and rich in scent, with deep, almost booming fruit, floral touches, and plenty of richly textured lushness, too. A compelling effort.’ 93 pts, Jefford on Monday, Decanter, October 2016
- 2013 Vintage – ‘Shows very good depth and energy on the finish, which lingers with repeating florality and round, even tannins.’ Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2016
