Chateau de Saint Cosme, nestled in the southern Rhone appellation of Gigondas, sings of history. With its average of 60-year-old vines, over 500 years of Barruol family ownership, and 14th generation winemaker Louis Barruol at the helm, you cannot dispute their establishment. Louis makes a range of wines, influenced by biodynamic principles. From fantastic bang for your buck Cotes du Rhone (look for plenty of forest fruits and a graphitey nose), to the serious, bold and complex Gigondas single plots, there's something for every palate.
70% Grenache - 14% Syrah – 15% Mourvèdre - 1% Cinsault.
Chateau de St. Cosme
The talented Louis Barroul is the 14th generation of his gamily to make wine at Saint Cosme which is found to the north of the village of Gigondas, in the southern Rhône. Lying on the site of a Gallo-Roman villa, it is the most ancient estate in the region with the remains of a Roman cellar still visible in the property’s caves. Barroul’s ancestors acquired it in 1570 and built a splendid residence over existing cellars.
