Chateau de Saint Cosme Châteauneuf du Pape 2015
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Chateau de Saint Cosme|
A direct, focused, slightly taut style, with a good dose of singed cedar and alder framing the core of red currant, plum and bitter cherry paste flavors. Lots of bay leaf, rosemary and sanguine accents fill in on the finish, which keeps a cedary edge. For fans of the old-school style. Best from 2020 through 2035. 1,000 cases made, 680 cases imported.
Sourced from three lieux-dits (including La Crau), Saint Cosme's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of approximately 60% Grenache, 20-25% MourvÃ¨dre and bits and pieces of other varieties. It's full-bodied, rich and spicy, with hints of cumin, licorice, cinnamon and clove all swirling about on the long finish.
