2005 Saint Cosme Chateauneuf du Pape
"The 2005 Gigondas has good structure, low pH, and a nice acid profile. Deep ruby/purple with notes of flowers, blueberries, and black fruits, the wine is rich, heady, and best given 2-3 years of cell...
International Wine CellarRating: 91/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 130, January/February 2007 ($68) Light yellow. Bright citrus aromas are deepened by coconutty oak and sharpened by a candied ginger quality. Fresh and mineral-driven, with impressive energy to the orange and white peach flavors. A late note of candied violet adds complexity to the long, juicy finish. I could knock off a bottle of this in no time. Barruol suggests serving Condrieu with Thai food.
