2007 Château Cos d'Estournel Saint-Estephe

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.

With its perfumed aromas, this is a wine that has richness and sweetness, with soft velvet power. It has an intense wood element that needs to blend into the rest of the wine, but the sweet black currant and freshness provide a good balance. This is a seductive wine, with a fine solid character.

    (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)
