K&L Notes

94 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Cos d'Estournel is backward and broody on the nose, just like the Pagodes de Cos, but it unfurls nicely in the glass to reveal intense blackberry, graphite and light tobacco aromas. The oak is nicely integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive depth, well-judged acidity and plenty of tobacco-infused black fruit. I appreciate that this embraces the character of Saint-Estèphe with that earthy, almost ferrous finish coming through on the grippy finish. Yes, there remains a slight sense of conservatism toward the finish and granted, it is predestined to be overshadowed by the exemplary 2016. Yet this is a fine Cos d’Estournel that should give 20 to 25 years of drinking pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2020 - 2040." (02/2018)

    Only 39% of the harvest was used in the grand vin and includes 40-100 year old-vine Merlot grown on gravel soils. Cos d’Estournel has one of the most privileged terroirs of St-Estèphe on the southern slopes of the hill of Cos. They also use all gravity flow throughout the winemaking facilities. Dark and spicy with currant, black fruits and graphite. Firm but rich fruited and dense from the old vines.
