With a garnet and purple hue, the pretty robe of the Costes 2018 is clear and perfectly limpid. The nose opens up with ripe fruit, questches, and pronounced blackcurrant. Thanks to its maturing in half barrels of one or two wines, half vat, the Costes 2018 enjoys at the same time an incredible fruitiness, more substantial aromas of maturing and a nice touch of freshness. Indeed, while the French oak gives it this delicious and delicate fragrance of Madagascar vanilla, the latter knows how to be discreet and give way to a refreshing note of kirsch cherry, and more difficult to detect, pink berry. Full, rich, the nectar invades the palate of the taster and offers a pleasant sensation of fullness through its flesh and balance. The wine is supple with excellent mouthfeel. The ellagic tannins, still very present, call for 3 to 5 years of ageing. The Cuvée des Costes 2018 is definitely taking the opposite side of the various fashion trends animating the French barrel landscape, proving that woodiness, when practiced with reason and delicacy, serves the wine rather than dessert... Speaking of dessert, count up to ten caudalies and then serve yourself!

The word of the Winemaker, :

Once upon a time there was Grandpa Henri's mazet in a place called "Les Costes"... A mazet made of beautiful stones, nestled in the middle of the Pic Saint-Loup garrigue.
