Cos d'Estournel is an essential classified growth of its Saint-Estephe appellation. The 1988 vintage reveals an intense, fresh and fruity nose. At the tasting, it is a wine of magnificent length. When ripe, the Cos d'Estournel can already be tasted.

(11-1998) This powerhouse is rather traditional and decadent compared to the modern-day wines from Cos. Ink-colored and full-bodied, with ripe fruit aromas, velvety tannins and intense berry and spice flavors.

(08-2013) Mid blueish crimson with a pale rim. Looks so much younger than the 1989 and 1990 tasted alongside! Nicely evolved. The nose recalls the 1998 tasted earlier. Manages to be both fresh and fleshy (whereas so many bordeaux 1988s are a bit austere). Well done. Nervy but not skinny. Very 'correct'. Clean and fresh. A certain sweetness at first and then still a little chewy but that just serves to keep it refreshing. Quite long.
