Product Description

Good Morning!

Bacchus sometimes overlooks the fact that many of our loyal friends like to drink wine on its own, as a cocktail, aperitif or night cap. Bacchus himself is a great believer in drinking wine with food, a very Old World tradition. So today’s offering is for the wine drinker at heart, to enjoy without the added stress of what should we pair with it.

The 2018 Saint Cosme Little James Basket Press Blanc ought to be your fall season house wine. It is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier – two grapes not generally blended together because they grow in very diverse climates – except in Southern France. Viognier is the chief ingredient in Condrieu and many Cotes du Rhone Blanc. It is rare that any winemaker considers the Sauv Blanc and Viognier complementary – and that is very unfortunate.

St. Cosme owner Louis Barruol, whose family has owned the estate since the 1500s, considers the two grapes a masterful compilation and we agree. St. Cosme estate is located in Gigondas in Southern Rhone and produces legendary reds – among the best of the appellation. The same team puts together the Little Basket Press.

Why should it be your house white? It spans the flavor profile of many other wines. The Sauv Blanc gives it ripe fruit notes of melon, citrus, with a zippy line of acidity, while the Viognier, with its floral and rich personality, adds a bit of weight and lushness. A wine like this could spin wildly out of control, from overly fruity to acidic, but not when made by a world class winemaker. Like all well made Old World wines, this is even, balanced, and worth every penny.

Satisfy your need for a Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc all in one bottle. Drink at any occasion – or no occasion. Just have plenty on hand.

Bacchus happily makes it affordable for you today.
