Wine Description

65% Cabernet, 35% Merlot, 60% new oak; A great success for the vintage, with a first wine comprised of only 25% of the harvest; young, dark color; the gravel soils protected the harvest from rains, and resulted in considerable concentration, tannic solidity, much body and superb aromatic complexity.

    Parker review: The dark ruby-colored 1999 Cos is a supremely elegant effort. The wine offersnotes of dried Provencal herbs, smoke, licorice, black cherries, and cassis.This medium to full-bodied St.-Estephe is cerebral, intellectual, and refined,but lacking soul and hedonism. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - April 2002)
