Château Cos Labory Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe 1983

Winemaker's Notes:

A top class St. Estephe wine. There is good ripe fruit on the palate with a soft cedary finish. A well-produced wine from what was a difficult vintage.

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.

This offerers up a meaty, roasty nose that is a bit hotter than the 81 and retains a decidedly roasted cherry fruit aspect that pairs well with the predominant cigar wrapper nose. A bit tough and even hollow on the midpalate. Big and loosely knit with lots of soft tannin supporting an earthy, woodsy core of fruit. This lacks the focus of the 81 and seems to have had the freshness cooked out it by the vintage. Drink em if you got em

Raisin colored with a nose full of leather. Spices and oak were the predominate flavors, with a notes of pepper in the mid-palate and subtle raisin at the end. Mild tannins made the bottle easily drinkable. Paired lovely with duck breast.

Dense and powerful with tobacco, cherry and vanilla aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very firm with a long finish. Needs time; try after 1998.--The Bordeaux 50. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1983 Cos d'Estournel 750ml
