The perfect vintage for the Cos d’Estournel style: ripe, balanced and powerful. Cos is one of the top producers in Bordeaux and is known for rich, sensuous wines that finish refined and floral. The critics agreed on the 2009, awarding two perfect 100-point scores. This is one to own more than one bottle.
Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Cos d'Estournel features a myriad of wonderfully intense notes, including blackcurrant pastilles, redcurrant jelly, kirsch and blueberry compote with hints of rose hip tea, sautéed herbs, underbrush, pencil shavings and Indian spices. Full-bodied, rich and opulently fruited in the mouth, it has beautifully plush tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and very spicy.
