Château Cos d'Estournel Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1994

$95

Cos d'Estournel's unfiltered 1994 is one of the top wines of the vintage. It boasts an opaque blue/black/purple color, as well as a fabulously sweet nose of black fruits, licorice, pain grillee, and Asian spices. Full-bodied, with sweet, opulent fruit that reveals none of the vintage's tough tannin, this remarkably rich, well-balanced, classic wine will prove to be uncommonly long-lived... Cos d'Estournel is clearly producing wines that are often of first-growth potential. Robert Parker

Opened fairly quickly upon decanting. Not a great vintage, but the quality of the chateau really shows.

Thin and lacking depth. No fruit and no complexity. Dry paper taste.

Crazy good! 1994 vintage and it still has youthful exuberance. On the nose, menthol, dark fruits and tobacco leaf. The palate has smoked meats, mint, anise, and still dark fruits. Amazing!

Earthy and dusty, dried berries, much spice, rough and elegance, some impression of the age
