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!
