94pts Jeb Dunnuck

Bottled just a few weeks prior to this tasting, the 2022 Condrieu is straight-up terrific, with classic Condrieu notes of ripe peach, orange blossom, and tangerine in its medium to full-bodied, fresh, focused, mineral-laced profile. It has everything you could want from a top Condrieu and is perfect for drinking over the coming 4-6 years or more.”

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Tasted just prior to bottling last year, the 2022 Condrieu combines lovely perfumed florals with hints of apricot, pineapple and lychee. It's medium to full-bodied, silky-textured and expansive on the palate.

93pts James Suckling

Focused, poised and voluptuous white from Condrieu. Aromatic nose of baked lemons, apricots, baked peaches, warm spices and flowers. Medium-bodied with so much volume on the mid-palate. Well rounded and well driven. Precise, flavorful and delicious. 

Winemaker Notes

Saint Cosme Condrieu shows classic aromas and flavors of dried apricot, peach, and orange blossom with fennel, anise, and elderflower. Twelve months of aging on its fine lees in used Burgundian pièce brings texture to the palate. This is a classic Condrieu.

Viognier aged in neutral barrels has a full body and rich texture with medium acidity. It is easily paired with dishes that feature creamy sauces, mild white fish, and roasted pork or chicken.

Winery Notes

Chateau de Saint Cosme is the leading estate of Gigondas and produces the appellation’s benchmark wines. Wine has been produced on the site of Saint Cosme since Roman times, evident by the ancient Gallo-Roman vats carved into the limestone below the chateau. The property has been in the hands of Louis Barruol’s family since 1570. Henri and Claude Barruol took over in 1957 and gradually moved Saint Cosme away from the bulk wine business. Henri was one of the first in the region to work organically beginning in the 1970s. Louis Barruol took over from his father in 1992, making a dramatic shift to quality, adding a négociant arm to the business in 1997, and converting to biodynamics in 2010.
