  • Little James is at Saint Cosme the wine of freedom. Our Solera is getting more and more complexity year after year. When we add the current vintage, the solera gains a new element without changing the style... This wine recalls the ancient times when the wine merchants would make wines having only one target: the pleasure. Blending vintages can be a great way to make nice wines, if it’s well done. This cuvee shows how the grenache can be a «chameleon-grape» which has the ability to take many different forms. But it always keeps its sense of softness, fruit and texture. The 2012 bottlings will contain 50% of 2011, blended with all the vintages back to 1999. Cherry, spices from the souk, gingerbread, strawberry compote, coal, garrigue.
  • Saint Cosme - located north to the village of Gigondas - is the most ancient estate in the region. Lying on the site of a Gallo-Roman villa which very probably already had its own vineyard, the estate's existence in 1416 is attested by a document mentioning the granting by Jean de Chalon, Price of Orange, of "land for the planting of vines on the Saint Cosme slopes.
