Saint-Cosme “les Deux Albion” Côtes du Rhône 2002

Saint-Cosme les Deux Albion Côtes du Rhône 2002

Last bottle. A shocking vintage, and lots of premium wines and super cuvees weren’t made, so by some perverse logic lesser appelation wines like this might look better than they ordinarily would. And to be honest, I was quite surprised how good this was. Cherry fruits and garrrigue, a touch of blackberries, stones and earth. There was also a greenness that was not exactly like stalks or green beans, but a vegetative character was noticeable on the nose and on the palate. Good balance, reasonable length with some complexity and a touch of bitterness on the finish. Drink now.
