(10-2000) A lovely wine. For me a perfect Cos, even from the start. This is what a claret is all about. Drink now or keep it five-ten years.

(03-2009) Tasted at the Cos d’Estournel dinner at St. John. Compared to the ’82, this is obviously lighter and less complex, aromas of smoky bacon crisps, chestnut, charcoal and autumn bonfire. A little dusty but it has good definition. Medium-bodied on the palate, very smooth, much fleshier than the ’86, very seductive although it does not aspire to be an intellectual wine. Yet it has that caressing texture, touches of wild strawberry, liquorice and saddle-leather towards the finish and a dash of white pepper on the aftertaste. A comely Saint Estephe, although it will not get any better. Drink now-2015. Tasted March 2009.

(09-1996) Dark, rich and deeply concentrated. California-like, with its opulent coffee, herb, cedar, currant, coffee, mineral and spice flavors. Reaching a nice drinking plateau, but has substance, depth and a long, full finish.

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 Les Pagodes de Cos, from vines aged less than twenty years. Best vintages are 200320001996199519941990198619851982, 1961, 19591953.
