Gigondas Le Poste 2016

Château de Saint Cosme

The Château de Saint Cosme Gigondas Le Poste is often regarded as a feminine wine; one that exerts strength and depth. Crafted from old Grenache vines rooted in limestone and marl, this red is a reflection from the land in which it came.

Tasting Notes

Aromas and supple flavors of violet and tar emanate from the glass in the Château de Saint Cosme Gigondas Le Poste. Full and rich, the old vines pass down fine intensity and a substantial finish to the final wine.

Food Pairing

A wonderful accompaniment to fresh pasta in meat sauce with char-grilled zucchini.
