Rated 90 by Robert Parker
Probably my favorite vintage of this cuvee to date, the 2013 Cotes du Rhone Blanc has loads of tropical fruits, pineapple and floral notes in its medium-bodied, thrillingly pure, crisp and lengthy personality. While it doesn't skimp on texture, it has beautifully integrated acidity and will be versatile on the dinner table. I'd drink it over the coming year or two, but wouldn't be surprised to see it drink well from longer.

Additional Information on Chateau De Saint Cosme Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2013

Winery: Chateau De Saint Cosme

Varietal: White Rhone Blend

For centuries, the Rhone region of France has been producing blended white wines of exceptional quality and character, which are consistently counted as being amongst the finest in the world. The skill and expertise demonstrated by the master vintners of this special region has been much imitated and emulated across the globe, but few other countries can come close to the excellence of the original. The secret to the superb flavors and character of blended Rhone wines are the careful use of a couple of high quality grape varietals, with most wineries using no more than two varietals in their blend. The grapes used are most commonly Viognier, Rousanne, Marsanne or Grenache Blanc, and these particular varietals lend the blended white wines of Rhone their distinctive floral aromas and brightness of flavor.

Region: Rhone Valley

In southern France, one of the primary wine regions responsible for the production of a fine and varied range of wines is the Rhone Valley. Split into two large sub-regions, this expansive valley benefits from micro-climates which allow the wineries to grow a vast array of fine grape varietals. The northern region is the more limited one in regards to the amount of varietals grown, focusing predominantly on raising excellent quality Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier vines for their distinctive and elegant range of wines. The southern region, on the other hand, has a beautifully Mediterranean climate, and is home to dozens of grape varietals which are used to produce white, red and rosé wines, alongside some of the most famous and widely loved blended wines in the world.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
