Saint Cosme's 2018 Gigondas is a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 14% Syrah and 1% Cinsault, aged in a combination of new and used oak, with 30% of the volume matured in concrete. Full-bodied and generous, it's round and supple, with no hard edges to hamper the easy flow of asphalt, red raspberries and black cherries across the palate. Boasting ample but not excessive concentration, it's a lovely, seductive example of Gigondas to enjoy over the next decade or so.

From one of Gigondas's top producers, I guess it should be no surprise that this year's lineup is flat-out terrific. The single-parcel wines from 2018 are among the best I've tasted here, managing to combine remarkable intensity with seductive, approachable textures. These are wines that are delicious now, yet appear capable of drinking well for more than a decade.
