K&L Notes

Winemaker Louis Barroul, who took over Château de Saint Cosme from his father in 1992, is the 14th generation of his family to care for this esteemed estate. So it would probably be fair to say that these wines are in his blood. The Gigondas wines all come from the 15 acres planted around the Château. The Valbelle is unique in that it is 90% Grenache and 10% whole cluster Syrah from five different 80-year-old vineyards that are cofermented--the disparate ingredients mingling into one like mama's sauce. The 2010 is stunning--on par with great vintages like 1995, 1996, 2005 and 2007--but with a slightly more reserved profile that encourages aging. Currently showing incredible wild raspberry, white pepper, garrigue and pencil lead notes on the nose and palate. Firm structure and fresh acidity. 14.5% abv.
