1989 Chateau Cos d'Estournel Saint Estephe
|Vineyard:||Chateau Cos d'Estournel|
An exceptional vintage with the earliest harvesting period of the century. The mellow tannin is further softened by the richness in alcohol and feeble acidity. The fruit is brilliant, intense and delicate. Very deep colour. Bouquet with complex aromas of charred wood, spices, coffee and ripe fruits. Admirable in the mouth because of the melting tannin and velvety texture. A fleshy, compact structure which unveils itself fully. Superb persistence. 2000-2009
User Tasting Note
jkushnerSplurge wine. Garnet with brown, orange, and white rim variation. Nose of cherry, strawberry jam, leather, dry hay, blackberries, dry leaves, stewed tomatoes, sage. Perfectly integrated acids and tannins. Paired very well with wagyu strip steak but even better on its own. Intoxicating nose that goes on and on. Long finish.
