Saint Cosme Côte-Rôtie 2015

Tasting Notes

"91-93+ POINTS - The 2015 Côte Rôtie is loaded with gamy and meaty characteristics, as well as blackcurrants, raspberries, olive tapenade and loads of peppery spice. Full-bodied, layered and beautifully ripe, forget bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following decade or more" - Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

Grapes for this wine were grown on schist soils on the slopes of the Le Plomb, Besset, La Viallière and Neve vineyards in Côte Rôtie. This Côte-Rôtie always shows stunning aromatics, breed and class.

Château de Saint Cosme sits on the site of a Gallo-Roman villa and has been in existence since 1416. Winemaker Louis Barruol took over from his father in 1993 and began a negociant arm of the business in 1997.  The property has been in the family since 1490 with 14 generations of vignerons tending the historic site.
