Château Cos d'Estournel Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe 1982

Winemaker's Notes:

With a 95 point score attached, Robert Parker writes; “This 1982 is still displaying a beautiful deep ruby/purple hue as well as a stunning set of aromatics consisting of blue and black fruits, loamy earth, flowers, licorice, and spice box. The wine is medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a silky finish. It appears to have hit full maturity, but it can easily be held in a cold cellar for another 10 years.”

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.

Simply one of the best wines I've tasted, full bodied, deep, well integrated tanins, low acidity. Fantastic

He looks a bit like Lee van Cleef, tall and rangy, dark and austere. A leathery, well-aged gentleman, with style like you wouldn't believe. Flinty eyes and a piercing stare, he's got a hard edge this one - he's not interested in conversation, but that's okay because you're happy to watch and listen. As smoke rises from the open fire and the stars come out, he seems more warmly human, and though he doesn't laugh a lot, you're definitely glad you came.

A spectacular performance...Sweet aromas of jammy black fruits intermixed with roasted espresso and vanillin jump from the glass of this young, concentrated, full-bodied, succulent effort. An opulent texture, low acidity, and splendidly pure, concent... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Cos d'Estournel 750ml
