TN: 2016 Saint-Cosme Côtes du Rhône

  • 2016 Saint-Cosme Côtes du Rhône - France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Côtes du Rhône (5/5/2018)
    Day 1: Just drank a glass.
    Day 2: Stems, floral, walnuts, lighter fruits and minerals. Short to medium finish. Good wine overall. 87 points
    Day 3: Better with boysenberries, stone, underbrush, walnuts and subtle floral notes. Medium finish. This wine excelled on day 3 and proves my theory again that many younger wines should not be consumed on day 1. 89 points
    Recommendation: Hold for a few years or 3 plus hour decant. (89 pts.)

Cool wine to buy mags of in good years and sit down. Same with Deux Albion.

Agreed. I usually buy this as a drinker, especially the Deux Albion. And as Kris said, a couple mags a year for things like the huge family Thanksgiving dinner. Have not tried the 2016 yet but went deep in 2015.

Thanks for the note, it made me grab a 6-pack of ‘15s from a retailer not far away, at a very reasonable price. Excited to try them!
