Cos D’Estournel 2018

Cos d'Estournel

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 98.0

The leading estate in Saint-Estèphe, the Deuxième Grand Cru Classé Cos d’Estournel is favoured for creating deliciously full-bodied and highly tannic wines, that once developed, have the ability to rival some of the top estates in the neighbouring Pauillac. The typical Cos d’Estournel blend usually includes Cabernet Sauvignon (c.60%), Merlot (c.38%) and Cabernet Franc (c.2%). Named after its nineteenth-century owner, Louis-Gaspard d’Estournel, who in his lifetime built the incongruous Orientalist estate that stands out within the Bordeaux landscape, Cos D’Estournel is as infamous for its Château, as it is for its characteristically distinct and sensuous first wine.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2018 Cos d’Estournel has a deep garnet-purple color. It gives up notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, and licorice, over a core of blackcurrant cordial, stewed plums, and boysenberries. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of black fruit preserves, with a rock-solid, grainy texture and a very long, spicy finish.

74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Barrel sample. Black core with narrow purple rim. Intense black fruit with just a hint of charry oak. Smells sweet and ripe but pure and fresh-fruited too. Glorious Cabernet here. Deep, chewy and rich on the palate, firm velvet texture, incredibly moreish and so fresh, as much from the tannins as from the acidity. Leaves your mouth clean with dark, savoury, rocky length. Very precise winemaking. I love those dry clean-tasting tannins on the finish. (JH)
