About

91

Smooth and rich while remaining structured, this wine performs the role of second wine very well. The tannins are already rounded and the black currant fruit remains fresh. It should be ready to drink in 2016.

90 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

This is delicious second wine from Cos d’Estournel, with spice, meat and currant character. Full body, round tannins and a clean finish. Needs two or three years to soften but it’s already very good.

Product Description:

Impressive when young for the intensity of its structure and explosive fruit, Cos d’Estournel evolves slowly to arrive, when completely mature (after ten to thirty years) at an admirable smoothness and aromatic complexity.
