(11-2012) Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy’s 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. I have always loved this Cos d’Estournel, far more than either Montrose or Calon-Segur. Here it has a sensual nose of dark cherries, hot gravels, a cheeky scent of aniseed and roasted chestnuts. It has such personality and charm that you don’t care whether it was cropped at 250hl/ha (joke). The palate is full-bodied with good density and weight in the mouth. It is very harmonious with a fine seam of acidity and touches of roasted herbs and bay leaf towards the finish that perhaps is just beginning to lose its cohesion with age. Still, a Saint Estephe that you cannot help but enjoy. Tasted November 2012.

Acker Merrall and Condit: (05-2012) 1982 Cos d’Estournel has always been a pet ’82 of mine ever since it smacked down an anonymous First Growth one wine-filled and fueled weekend years ago. I should note that the ‘Any Given Sunday’ rule applies, which is not to say that the other result could also happen on another given day, whether it be then or now. There was great spice to the Cos’ nose, with sweet caramel and honey glazes. The palate was nutty and smooth, super chocolaty and lush. This was tasty in a no need to be hasty way.

(11-1998) Built for aging. Very dark ruby in color, with a garnet rim. Dried flower and berry aromas. Full-bodied and very solid, with masses of fruit and tannins. Still has plenty of time to go.
