"This is so aromatic with blackcurrants, black berries and raspberries. Pure fruit, together with coffee and nutmeg. Really fresh and clean with bright spices. Full-bodied, yet reserved and tight with fantastic structure. So long. This is a great Cos for the cellar. A real benchmark for the true character. Needs at least five or six years to open and come around. Try after 2029. "

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, the 2019 Cos d'Estournel is deep garnet-purple colored. It needs a lot of coaxing to reveal notes of plum preserves, blueberry compote, creme de cassis, and wood smoke with wafts of charcuterie, tapenade, Indian spices, and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, the palate has super-firm, super-grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the savory layered fruit, finishing long and earthy. This is a new-age legend in the making!
