Wine Description

(From 2004 Vintage) Cos d'Estournel has become, in the eyes of the Great Wine lovers, the archetype of a certain style of virile elegance where the power excludes neither grace nor sweetness. Impressive in his youth by the intensity of its structure and the brilliance of its fruit, the wine of Cos d'Estournel evolves slowly to reach its full maturity (between 10 and 30 years) a melted and a wonderful aromatic complexity. The great vintages can achieve exceptional longevity, exceeding the century.

Winemaker's Notes

Dense, old vine flavors of cassis and black fruit offset by refined mineral, liquorice and tobacco notes lead into this wine's layered, complex palate which is supported by a firm, focused backbone of sweet, ripe tannins and an elegant, balanced acidity on the extended finish.
