Cotes du Rhone, Rhone, France
Deep plum in color with ruby glints, the Château de Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône ‘Les Deux Albion’ is teeming with enticing aromas of blackberry, forest floor, licorice, and spice. The palate is medium-bodied, layered and textured with notes of black pepper, herbs de Provence, green olive, and black fruit.
Pairs well with roasted game and caramelized root vegetables.
“Deep ruby. Incisive aromas of fresh red berries, candied lavender and smoky minerals, complemented by a subtle garrigue nuance. Juicy, concentrated and focused on the palate, offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and more lively with air. Shows very good depth as well as vivacity; fine-grained, firming tannins build slowly on the long, mineral-driven finish.” 91 Pts – Vinous
