Chateau de Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône 2019
A wine with a substantial structure, it is also brimming with fruit and shows great concentration, counterbalanced by the finest freshness. In a dry vintage, concentration affects all the component parts of the fruit: not just the sugars, but the acids, water (which does not concentrate but disappears...), tannins, colour, aromas... etc... This natural phenomenon produces something we all love: intensity. Character and identity are subsequently multiplied tenfold. The fact that nature should be able to offer us these gifts is an absolute joy. These wines are suitable for either drinking or keeping. They will bring us joy and surprises. They will become advocates for what I would call 'the red wine cause'. We live in an era of white wines, rosés and sometimes even unripe grapes - which is an aberration. This is the age of sparkling wines and 'wine drinks'. But 2019 is a gentle reminder from nature and a timely opportunity to set the record straight. Blackberry, smoked bacon, charcoal, blueberry, rose.
