One of the top sleeper picks from Chateauneuf du Pape in 2001 is the St.-Cosme offering. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, nearly all from two sectors of Chateauneuf du Pape, one on sand and one on the rocks, is a superb 4,000-bottle cuvee that was aged in one and two-year old barrels. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of sweet black truffles, licorice, blackberry liqueur, kirsch, and smoke. Full-bodied, with an unctuous texture, impressive purity, and a tremendously long finish, this is a sensational effort. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015. (RP)
Beautiful. Rich and ripe, smooth and silky, a dark-colored, full-bodied Châteauneuf delivering plenty of complexity—earth, mineral, spice, chocolate, plum and black berries. Impeccable balance on the long finish. Tempting now, but will improve with age. Drink now through 2015.
Red-ruby. Sexy, superripe aromas of roasted plum, tobacco, spicecake and pepper. Sweet, thick and pliant, with impressive concentration and extract. A big, ripe, warm wine with spice and tobacco flavors. Finishes quite long, with ripe, oak-enhanced tannins.
