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.

Powerful, dark, earthy fruit. This is going to be a great wine in time. Not very approachable now.

Beautiful dark inky color with rather muted nose with subtle aromas of violets and and faint oak or leather. i could sniff this stuff all day! full bodied wine with sweet tannins and very approachable. lovely dark fruits and a very very long finish. being so young this is truly an amazing wine! i look forward to tasting this wine again in the future to see its progression.

Christmas bottle, from cellar. Decanted through Vinturi aerator, then held 2 hours. Black. Shiny. Red rim. Blackberries, black currant, oak, and noble leather. A wine that exudes confidence and even a swagger. This is a hibernating bear coaxed to show its power, and it rose from slumber to do just that. Second day was also a demonstration of breed and effortless ability to cruse at 140mph all day. It is all there for a huge future. Wait until 2015+. Also a great set-up for comparison to the new 2009 at Primeur, and the entirely new receiving line and tank room. If 2009 can hurdle this wine, we will know such extravagant investment can actually yield results a wine lover can appreciate. We shall see! (0 views)

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.
