The most famous area in the southern Rhône is Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Mostly rocks, clay, and very little dirt, vines work extra hard to produce grapes rich in juice and flavor. A producer of great renown, the St. Cosme is truly exquisite. With two years on oak, generous aromas of red berry, white truffles, and gingerbread; it is dense and powerful—and with a little age, it will grow only silkier. A generous gift to someone you admire, or just for yourself, enjoy it with veal, pork, lamb, or a holiday meal.
