The must-try 2017 Domaine de Saint Cosme, Les Deux Albion blanc


The 2017 Domaine de Saint Cosme, Les Deux Albion blanc, IGP Vaucluse came with a fine recommendation from Phil at MacArthur Beverages.  This is only the second vintage of this wine made using fruit from a vineyard located across from Gigondas.  It is here that the limestone concentration in the soil is amongst the highest in the region.  It is these soils which must contribute to the wine being more floral and nutty than fruity.  Aging on the lees and a judicious use of oak impart attractive body.  Do not fear if you cannot finish the bottle in one night because I find it stays in top shape for days.


2017 Domaine de Saint Cosme, Les Deux Albion blanc, IGP Vaucluse – $20
Imported by Winebow.  This wine is a blend of 50% Viognier, 30% Picpoul, and 20% Marsanne aged on the lees for 5 months in a mixture of stainless steel and oak.  Alcohol 14%.  A very light, dry straw color.  In the mouth this wine is dense and rounded in body with a floral middle backed by white nuts, stone, and modest fruit.  This drinks well immediately upon opening but also delivers the same quality and satisfaction after opening the bottle for days. *** Now – 2020.
