K&L Notes

Cos d'Estournel is a 2nd Growth from St-Estèphe. Their 91 hectares are planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, with the Cabernet on the hilltop and southern slopes where there is a thin gravel soil and the Merlot is planted on the eastern exposed limestone slopes. Grapes for the Grand Vin come only from vines at least 20 years old. The late 2008 vintage has low yields and a final blend of 85% Cabernet, 13% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

    This wine showed fantastically at the tasting, but it was a bit tight at our staff seminar. This is a dense wine with Asian spice, mineral and dark berry fruit filling the nose. Dense black fruit and currant flavors fill the palate along with Asian and oak spice. The fine tannins are evident, with bright acidity and a long finish of mineral and spice. Expensive compared to the other wines on this list, but a bargain compared to the ’09 and ’10.
