Antonio Galloni/Vinous 92 Points Brilliant ruby. Smoky cherry, boysenberry and potpourri scents show very good clarity and pick up a spicy quality with aeration. Intense red and blue fruit flavors are complicated by a floral pastille nuance. Finishes on a gently tannic note, delivering very good energy and spicy thrust.

In the heart of the appellation Gigondas, the Château de Saint Cosme is an exceptional
estate, with its Gallo-Roman fermentation vats perfectly preserved. This fantastic
historical site gives a good idea how our ancestors the gallo-romans were living.
The property has been in our family since 1490 and we have been vignerons for 14
We have 15 hectares of old vines (average 60 years old) with a yield of around 27Hos/Ha.
The terroir is apparently homogeneous but it’s actually geologically very diverse as
the Dentelles de Montmirail makes it very complicated. Saint Cosme is exceptionally
located at the crossing of two geological faults, which is very rare. This gives us an
extraordinary diversity of soils. Our micro-climate is cool and late ripening. Our Gigondas
have the ability to be powerful and refined at the same time. The Saint Cosme’s
Chapel, located in the heart of our vineyard is a pure example of roman art. It was
built at the XI and XII century. Purity, balance and beauty: the Chapel is a witness of
the medieval times and it gives an intense and special atmosphere to our vineyard.
Everyone should take five minutes to climb the little hill and visit it.
