SAINT COSME - CHATEAU DE SAINT COSME

Château de Saint Cosme is the oldest domaine in Gigondas, with the ruins of a Roman viticultural centre on site to prove it. Records show that it has been in the same family since 1490, making Louis Barruol a 14th generation vigneron. Louis' father preferred to sell his wonderful old vine grapes to the négociants, so it is only recently that the estate has begun to attract the attention of the top critics and opinion formers. This explains why, seemingly from nowhere, Château de Saint Cosme is suddenly being talked of as the hottest property in Gigondas (including a 5 star rating from Robert Parker).
Encouraged by the success of his estate wines, Louis established Saint Cosme in 1997. He calls this operation a "négoce-vigneron", because unlike traditional négociants, Saint Cosme buys the grapes still 'on the vine'. This gives him a totally free hand to make key qualitative decisions during the latter stages of ripening, setting the date of harvest and using his own team of selective pickers. The vineyards he chooses are all top sites, and subsequent winemaking is intelligent and attentive. The result is an exciting range of fine wines, representing the diverse terroirs and grape varieities that make the Rhône Valley a true wine lover's paradise.
