Chateau Cos D'Estournel slightly bin soiled label 1999
|Marke||Chateau Cos D'Estournel|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
|Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot|
The dark ruby-colored 1999 Cos is a supremely elegant effort. The wine offers notes of dried Provencal herbs, smoke, licorice, black cherries, and cassis. This medium to full-bodied St.-Estephe is cerebral, intellectual, and refined, but lacking soul and hedonism. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018.
Winespectator / James Suckling (87)
Tobacco and coffee aromas, with hints of fruit. Full- to medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. A bit short for Cos, but delicate and refined. Best after 2004. 23,330 cases made. â€“JS
