95 Point score by The Wine Advocate
Big florals and raspberries mark the nose of Saint Cosme's 2019 Cote Rotie. Hints of stems show through, and this wine clearly would benefit from a few years in the cellar, but it is far from being unapproachable. Normally a blend of several lieux-dits, it sees about 30% new oak in its élevage, but the wood is scarcely noticeable. Medium to full-bodied, creamy and supple on the palate, with a long, fruit-infused finish, this should age gracefully for a decade or more.

95 Pont Score by The Wine Spectator
A racy, high-pitched, mineral-driven style, with raspberry and damson plum coulis notes pierced with savory and sanguine accents. The long, tight-grained, iron-edged finish resonates. Best from 2022 through 2034.

The 2019 Côte Rôtie, which is all whole cluster Syrah, offers a more full-bodied, rich, powerful style while still holding on to plenty of elegance. Blackberries, crushed stone, ground pepper, and violets define the bouquet, and I love its balance, it brings lots of fruit yet stays pure and fresh, and it has a great finish. This is a ripe, powerful vintage for Côte Rôtie, and this handles it nicely.
