Rated 93 by James Suckling
This has a very attractive, dark-stone and black-fruit nose with rich and intense blackberries and licorice and some savory, rust-like, sanguine elements. There’s clay soil and iron to dry this. The richness and depth are impressive and there’s a wealth of intense, rich and very concentrated fruit on offer. Dark plums, blue fruit and long, succulent tannins. Spicy finish. An estate-grown blend of syrah, grenache, mourvedre, carignan and clairette. Drink or hold.
Rated 92 by Wine Enthusiast
An elevated Cotes du Rhone, this blend of five grape varieties is sourced from the communes of Plan de Dieu, Saint Maurice and Cairanne. Packed with ripe blackberry and plum flavors it also offers elegant notes of bramble, sage and violet. Lively and perfumed, the wine is balanced by crisp acidity and very fine, smooth tannins. Lovely now it should improve through 2027.
Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
Compact and a bit tannic this vintage, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone les Deux Albions is a Grenache-Syrah blend. Blueberries, cherries and dried spices provide plenty of flavor in this full-bodied offering that should be at its best over the next 5-6 years.
Rated 90 by Wine Spectator
Lively mesquite and black tea notes give this aromatic complexity, with the core of black cherry and plum fruit taking on a nice mulled hint. Offers good juicy energy. Drink now through 2021. 4,580 cases made, 1,750 cases imported.

Winery Chateau De Saint Cosme

Region: Rhone Valley

There are few wine regions in the world with a history as long and illustrious as that of the Rhone Valley in France. For over two thousand years, wines have been produced in this region, benefited by the excellent, mineral-rich soils of the region, and the varied climate which allows a wide range of grape varietals to grow. The Rhone Valley is now split into two quite separate regions, with the north part being characterized by its cooler, continental climate and the limited number of grape varietals grown, and the southern sub-region being perfect for growing a wide range of grapes, and producing an exciting number of different wine styles. The Rhone Valley is associated with elegant, flavorful wines, and certain grape varietals such as Viognier and Syrah, which are adept at expressing the finer features of their terroir.

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.
