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.

The nose showed blackberry jam, sweet spices, coffee notes and fresh turned earth. On the palate, I found aged red fruits and herbs, which faded into the long juicy finish. A very fine example of aged Bordeaux made in a classic style.

Anselmin synttärilounas: yön yli haudutettua lihapataa, valkosipuliperunoita ja vihanneksia. Ja punaviiniä. Cos oli melkoisen hyvää, tanniineja oli vielä jäljellä mutta lihapata pehmensi niitä mukavasti...

The 1986 is a highly extracted wine, with a black/ruby color and plenty of toasty, smoky notes in its bouquet that suggest ripe plums and licorice. Evolving at a glacial pace, it exhibits massive, huge, ripe, extremely concentrated flavors with impre... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Smells terrific, with great concentration of berry and cassis aromas, but the prominent tannins tend to cover the flavors, requiring cellaring until at least 1995. On balance, the concentration of fruit wins in the end. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Cos d'Estournel 750ml
