The Saint Cosme Châteauneuf-du-Pape allows the terroir to speak for itself; the clay and rolling stones of the vineyards hand us an alluring blend of Grenache Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Cinsaut. Aged for 24 months in old barrels, this red benefits from the long refinement in wood.

Tasting Notes

The Saint Cosme Châteauneuf-du-Pape offers generous aromas and flavors of white truffle, red berry and gingerbread. Powerful and dense, this offering will only grow silkier with age.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs perfectly with everything from veal, pork, and lamb, to stews, to rich seafood dishes.
