- It’s made from 100% Syrah. Most Cotes du Rhone I come across tend to be in large part made from Grenache. It’s a great way to get more familiar with Syrah.
- Aged in large vats rather than oak barrels, the Saint Cosme isn’t heavy, and the purity of the fruit really comes through. This makes for a versatile, food-friendly wine. I love it with pizza.
- Magnums! Thankfully not just the priciest of wines are bottled in the 1.5L size. Bring this to a dinner party and you will be a rock star. Magnums=fun.
- There is something about the label that I find charming. I wouldn’t mind living in that house, sitting underneath a tree with my glass of Cotes du Rhone
- Saint Cosme also makes an excellent white Cotes du Rhone. A blend of Marsanne, Viognier, Roussanne, and Picpoul, it’s a white with some richness that would be great with pork, chicken, or richer seafood dishes.
