It has very good concentration in the somewhat lean, austere character of the vintage, and plenty of tannin in the finish. Although it does not yet seem to be mature

The 1966 Cos d’Estournel exemplifies the vintage with great elegance. The nose smells of fresh fruit, making the wine seem much younger than its almost 50 years, and slightly floral. Beautiful and intoxicating. To the mouth the wine has a pure acidity that carries it for a long time. What it lacks in roundness it makes up for in concentration of acidity and length of trajectory. A specific style of Bordeaux that is difficult to find today. A real pleasure!

Cos d'Estournel
Cos d\'Estournel
The Chateau Cos d'Estournel is a vineyard of 67 hectares, located in Saint-Estephe in the Gironde. Cos d'Estournel is an AOC in the Medoc which is part of the Saint-Estephe appellation and classed a Second Growth Grand Cru in the classification of 1855. Cos Gascon means hill of stones. Cos d'Estournel is situated on a mound of clay mixed with limestone. The excess of stone, specific to Cos, therefore forces the vines to plunge deeper to draw its nees from the soil. Lack of water makes great wines and the wines of Cos benefit very well. The vines are 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and a small percentage of Cabernet Franc. The vineyards spread over thirty plots that average 35 years old. They are densely planted at 9000 vines / ha. Only vines more than twenty years old will be used for the top wine. Harvesting is done manually. The assembly of Cos varies annually. Full maturity of Cos wines is only achieved after 10-30 years, with exceptional longevity for the best years. A neighbor of Château Lafite Rothschild, Cos is a great wine in the classic tradition of the most prestigious Bordeaux of the Medoc. The winery produces 200 000-380 000 bottles per year... Cos produces a second wine called ThePagodes of Cos, from vines aged less than twenty years.
