Château Cos d'Estournel Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe 1981

Winemaker's Notes:

2ème Cru Classé

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.

Editorial Reviews for Château Cos d'Estournel Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe

Snooth User: Gregory Dal Piaz
3.50 5

Classy and bright on the nose with ripe herbaceousness that offers up nuances of medicinal and earthy notes over a base of deep cigar box and cedar. Medium full in the mouth with lovely integration. Good intensity of leafy cassis yet a bit 4 square though not lacking focus or tension in the mouth this remains a bit of a one trick poney. Still impressively well preserved and while in no danger of falling off a cliff it does not exacly overachieve. Now - 2015
