From the heart of the Southern Rhône, the Château de St. Cosme Gigondas is produced from 60 year old vines that enjoy a unique terroir. The structure and finesse, typically unusual for a southern Rhône wine, culminate to form a wine of striking balance and complexity with a wonderful capacity for aging.

Tasting Notes

The Château de St. Cosme Gigondas displays a deep ruby color with enticing aromas of gingerbread, blackberry, and white pepper. The palate offers ample freshness, sweet tannins, and a full bodied, lingering texture.
