Chateau de Saint Cosme Cote Rotie 2019

Winemaker Notes

Syrah from Cote Rotie, Rhone, France. On the palate, it reveals a fresh attack followed by an ample, structured, long-lasting finish. The wine unfurls in successive stages and ends with top-quality tannins produced by whole cluster fermentation. It features aromas and flavors of smoked ham, violet, graphite, graphite, and licorice.


 Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker 95: TBig florals and raspberries mark the nose of Saint Cosme's 2019 Cote Rotie. Hints of stems show through, and this wine clearly would benefit from a few years in the cellar, but it is far from being unapproachable. Normally a blend of several lieux-dits, it sees about 30% new oak in its élevage, but the wood is scarcely noticeable. Medium to full-bodied, creamy and supple on the palate, with a long, fruit-infused finish, this should age gracefully for a decade or more.

Wine Spectator 95: A racy, high-pitched, mineral-driven style, with raspberry and damson plum coulis notes pierced with savory and sanguine accents. The long, tight-grained, iron-edged finish resonates. Best from 2022 through 2034.

Jeb Dunnuck 94: The 2019 Côte Rôtie, which is all whole cluster Syrah, offers a more full-bodied, rich, powerful style while still holding on to plenty of elegance. Blackberries, crushed stone, ground pepper, and violets define the bouquet, and I love its balance, it brings lots of fruit yet stays pure and fresh, and it has a great finish. This is a ripe, powerful vintage for Côte Rôtie, and this handles it nicely.
