Chateau Cos D Estournel Impériale 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

5254210

Chateau Cos d'Estournel:
Born in 1762 during the reign of Louis XV and died in 1853 under Napoleon III, at the remarkable age of 91, Louis Gaspard d'Estournel had one sole passion: Cos. Having inherited a few vines near the village of Cos, he recognized, in 1811, the quality of their wine and decided to vinify them separately.

Lots of minerality and a barnyard scent on the nose. Firm acids and a real meatiness. Interesting, but fairly funky overall

Superlativ des Superlativs Zitat von Robert Parker zum 2009er Cos: «The greatest young wine I have ever tasted – in the world!» Wir glauben an ein Potenzial von 50 bis 60 Jahren. Unglaubliches Bouquet von dunklen Kirschen, Cassis, Oliven, Lakritze, Toastbrot, gewaltig konzentrierter Körper, im Gaumen Schokolade- und Mokka-Aromen. Im langen, unendlichen Abgang feine, reife Tannine mit sehr viel Frische und Frucht.

Eine prächtig aromatische Komplexität. In der Nase fruchtige Note von Pflaume und Beeren. Ein Wein von grosser Frische. Im Gaumen, freigiebig, ausgewogen und dicht.
