Product Details
Merk: Château de Saint Cosme
Ter info: Louis Barruol Saint Cosme Syrah Sérine Northern Rhône

“From nose to finish, this Syrah offers depth and nuance. Opening notes of menthol, eucalyptus and burnt sage accent ripe but restrained blackberry and cassis. It’s an invigorating sip, studded by crisp black-fruit flavors, hits of black pepper and fine tannins that extend the finish.” 97/100 (Wine Enthousiast)

“One of the gems in the Northern Rhône lineup is the 2018 Côte Rôtie, which, as with all of Louis’ wines,wasn’t destemmed and was brought up in 30-40% new oak. Stunning aromatics of black raspberries, olivetapenade, ground pepper, violets, and assorted meat notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, opulent,seamless Côte Rôtie that has a smoking good texture. Count me impressed.” 92-95/100 (Jeb Dunnuck)

Louis Barruol also makes a super refined but firm Côte-Rôtie from pure Sérine (old clone Syrah) sourced from top vineyards Le Plomb, Nève, Besset and La Vialière, all located north of Ampuis on a terroir of micaschiste. This wine matures for 12 months in 40% new oak barrels and is bottled unfiltered. Every year, this is an absolutely delicious and complex wine with a long life..
