Producer Notes

Classified as a Second Growth Bordeaux estate, Chateau Cos d'Estournel is without doubt, one of the top producers in the St. Estephe appellation, producing complex and intense, full-bodied wines.

Good balance and finesse. Lacks deep complexity, but otherwise very enjoyable.

Consistent with past bottles, but slightly fruitier and with less acid. Tannin level was in balance. Ready to go now with little to no decanting. Won't get much better, so drink up.

One of the best 2001 Cos d'Estournel I have tasted. It is absolutely mature, no tanin and suberb. Enjoy!

Seems to be hitting its peak. Well balanced, smooth tannins, drinking beautifully. Classical Cos, just as it should be...

Delicious. Dark purple color followed by aromas of blueberry on the nose. Dark ripe fruit on the palate with cedar. Long finish. This is evolving nicely, and resembles Pavie.

Stewed cherry, hot, a ton of acid, and some vegetal qualities. This wine is balanced at a very high decibel level.

Excellent wine. Good spice and fruit, long finish. Big, full-bodied wine with a lot of class. Great value compared to some of its peers.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
