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

Dark color. 2008 was the first vintage to be produced in our new wine-making facilities. The nose presents notes of black fruit, licorice and tobacco. This is a complex wine that offers both power and finesse. Elegant and velvety on the palate.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

  • Wine Spectator
    (From 2004 Vintage) "Loads of currant and blackberry, with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Round and generous for the vintage. Best after 2011. 15,000 cases made."
