Gigondas 2021 Le Poste - Chateau de St Cosme

 Domaine de Saint Cosme directly from the property 

   

 THE DOMAIN TELLS YOU ABOUT IT 

  - Characteristics : Old vines of Grenache planted with grapes. Whole grape harvest. Slope of chalky marls of Tortonian at the Chapel of Saint Cosme, at the place called "Le Poste". Bottled without filtration.

- Tasting : As always, Gigondas Le Poste is a very elegant wine, ethereal and that can be compared to a Burgundian style. It has an incredible purity in its aromas and flavors of forest fruits (black and blue), spring flowers, crushed stone and Provencal garrigue. It is never the fullest or richest wine in the range, but it is perhaps the most complex and nuanced. This beauty builds with time in the glass, holds a full mid-palate and a finish that doesn't quit. It will flirt with perfection and evolve for 20-25 years. 

- The winemaker tells you: "Aged for twelve months: 20% in new barrels-50% in one-wine barrels-30% in two-wine barrels. If the Claux has my affection, the Poste has my heart. This somewhat magical place has always been the place where my mother picks her thyme, rosemary, blackberries, figs, cherries and almonds. Elderberry and broom grow easily here and we even make honey with two hives: it will be the "honey of the post". Everything is intense and refined in this hillside. I sometimes dream of a "horizontal" tasting of this terroir, gathering all the marvels that it is capable of producing. But it will never be more than a dream because all these fruits of nature do not ripen simultaneously! Le Poste also has my heart because my father replanted this hillside in 1963. He was 35 years old and the photos of that planting show an energetic man capable of turning over mountains. That same year, he had to vinify what was undoubtedly the worst vintage of the century. And his Gigondas was of acceptable quality (a tour de force in 1963), with the help of his best friend, the oenologist Jean-Paul Laval, who at the time had the only oenological laboratory in the region."

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
