Update: The 2006 Chateau St. Cosme Gigondas just received recognition from Wine Spectator at #88 on their Top 100 Wines of 2008. They ranked it a well-deserved 92 points. This is the big brother to the St. Cosme Cotes-du-Rhone that I mentioned in my last post and I'll mention here that the Cosme Cotes-du-Rhone is composed primarily of fruit that didn't make it into their Gigondas-specific bottling and in our collective opinion here at Top Ten is an excellent buy ($17) at about half the price.
