Winemaker's Notes

(From 1995 Vintage) Gorgeous blackberry, toasted oak, Indian spice and light sweet tobacco on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a caressing texture. Pretty and refined.

    (From 2001 Vintage) Few men have translated their intellectual brilliance into brilliant wine as directly as Bruno Prats, proprietor of the magnificent Cos d'Estournel. The château itself is a 19th century architectural homage to the exotic Far East. The vineyard, just north across the marsh from Lafite, stretches to the Gironde on a deep, gravel promontory. Under Prats' stewardship, it has become one of the most reliable sources of first-quality wine in the Médoc. And the lustrous '94 is a prime example. The color is a deep and luminous ruby. The complex terroir unfolds deep Cabernet flavors read more...under a sheen of flashier Merlot and new oak. As such, it provides both intellectual and sensual pleasures, it the two can be considered separately. It's a classic Cos, and among the best of the '94s.    (hide)
