Château Cos d'Estournel Saint-Estephe
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.
Wine & Spirits(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)
