|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
|Brand||Chateau de Saint Cosme|
Les Deux Albions is one of the outstanding wines of Louis Barruol's collection and highlights the exceptional value that can still be found in the Côtes-du-Rhône category. The wine combines depth, structure, and finesse with aromas and flavors of roasted game, mesquite, and olive, crushed plum, and black currants.
Spicy notes of licorice, nutmeg and crushed granite accent rich streaks of blackberry preserve in this Syrah-dominant red blended with Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Clairette. A juicy yet briskly balanced wine marked by a mineral lift, it's an elevated Côtes-du-Rhône sourced from the prestigious village appellations of Plan de Dieu, Saint Maurice and Cairanne. At peak now-2025.
Juicy and fresh, with plum and blackberry compote notes backed by violet, dark licorice and wood spice accents. This has gutsy energy through the finish. Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Clairette. Drink now through 2024. 5,000 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.
