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.

Very deep; almost impenetrable. Liqueur-like, plummy, but not sweet. Very tannic; with time in the glass it started to show the more exotic incense-like Cos style.

Drink Dates 2011-2025

Loads of currant and blackberry, with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Round and generous for the vintage. Best after 2011. Solid, with lots of chewy tannins, but they are relatively round and refined. Full-bodied and long. Jean-Guillaume Prats, the manager, says that the wine was very high in alcohol (13.6 percent) yet also high in acidity. Almost 95-100. Score range: 92-94

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.
