1993 Château Cos d'Estournel Saint-Estephe

Winemaker's Notes

55% Cabernet, 45% Merlot; 65% new oak; Very dark color; ample, fleshy wine with solid though not harsh tannins; less vinous than a great vintage, but silky, dense and with great finesse; long finish.

    One of the most successful Medocs of the vintage, Cos d'Estournel's 1993 exhibits an opaque dark purple color, and a heady, sweet, pure, blackcurrant bouquet that roars from the glass. With surprising richness, fat, and glycerin, tasters would never suspect that this medium-bodied, elegant yet authoritatively-flavored wine emerged from such a difficult vintage. The wine's low acidity and roundness guarantees 12-14 years of drinkability. This is a splendid success in an irregular vintage. Cos d'Estournel is clearly producing wines that are often of first-growth potential. 89/100 RP
