Editorial Reviews for Château Cos d'Estournel Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe
Lovley nose opens with cool layers of pencil lead, burnt marshmallow, leafy herbs and coffee bean with a gentle plummy note and an edge of roast meat. Opens to reveal lots of bell pepper which I usually don't like to much but this is balanced, fresh , and attractive with more of a smoked green chili savoriness to it as opposed to a really vegetal aspect. Rich and perfectly balanced in the mouth with rich blackberry fruit balanced by dark, minerally earth that carries through to the long, firm finish. Classy bottle, very presice with excellent focus and cut and the perfectly ripe fruit really gives this an elegant softness that is appealing. 2007-2020
This has a huge roasted bell pepper nose with leather tones to the fresh core of blackberry fruit. In the mouth this remains tannic but the rich , slightly weedy blackberry fruit is able to handle the load quite well. With air this gets a bit velvetty, though it remains lean and sinewy. A classic Bordeaux that has many years of positive development ahead of it. 91pts
aromas filled with dark berries providing a little more oomph and concentration of the fruit than the other 1988 Pauillac I tasted. The palate bring alot of earthy notes, dried fruit with some mustiness, loads of complexity and concentration of dark berry fruits with dark cocoa/chocolate. Smooth easy going tannins with a long lasting linger in the mouth.
Floral and herbaceous with black olives and black pepper. Deep red fruit, tons of acidity and tar, and a great long tarry finish.
Love that wet wool nose. Eucalyptus and chemical with gamey pencil shavings. Nice stuff.
Coffee and tobacco on the nose - very nice with a cool minerality. Plums and cassis fruits in the mouth, and goof firm acids still on the finish, which was very fruity still.
