Saint Cosme "Les Deux Albion" Cotes du Rhone

Home > Shop > Saint Cosme "Les Deux Albion" Cotes du Rhone

Chateau Saint Cosme -“Les Deux Albion“- Côtes du Rhône rouge 2012 Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Clairette co-fermented. Six weeks maceration. Full clusters. Clay slope (ancient alluvions), limestony marl, rolling stones. Aged in wooden vats and concrete vats.` The “purchasing advisors” who criticized 2012 a bit too quickly will maybe have to re-think about their opinion. It looks like month after month that 2012 is, for the domaines which work well, an excellent vintage which won’t stop surprising us. Its magnificent style recalls the great “cool” Gigondas wines. The superiority of 2012 relatively to 2011 becomes more obvious every day. Deux Albion 2012 is a perfect image of this reality: its texture and its depth recall the 2010. Co-fermented in concrete vats as usual, it develops a good density, good colour and a length that reminds of a great vintage. 80% of the cuvée was aged in concrete vat, which says a lot about the ability of the wines from our region to be “self-suficient”.. In fact, this is in the concrete vats that Deux Albions gets the best expression. Its fruit full of terroir develops its own truth with freedom. The work of the vigneron is to understand what the best technical way for its terroir, and then add to his work a search of beauty. Ginger bread, smoked ham, violet, blackberry. -Producer's Notes
