This is a fantastic Cos d'Estournel... It is adorned with a lovely nose: blackberry, wild hedgerow, espresso, a touch of chocolate and sandalwood. Very fine definition and vigour. The palate is full-bodied with ripe tannins, superb symmetrical structure, dense, obdurate black fruits, a saline note, very well balanced, very focused, broadening out nicely towards the ravishing, supple finish. Excellent. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

So lucky someone thought to share this wine with me. Tart and mouthwatering and still so fresh.

Cos is a wine I have only tried a few times. A collector darling, most who collect it are fanatic only about Cos. Kind of like how Pittsburgh sports fans if you are familiar. These were both exceptional. The 2000 showed some tertiary aspects in the nose, less so in the palate as a strong, tannic structure bolstered my thoughts of much further longevity than the nose hinted to. Flush with the firm and chewy tannin Saint-Estephe wines sport for more time than their southerly Medoc counterparts. Plenty of layered, savory and pristine black and red fruits fan out over the structure. The 2005 is even more complex and dense and I would have to think will age at a glacial pace as this was just getting going from what I could tell as it was showing so young and tight. #cosdestournel #bordeaux #wine

This wine still needs a lot more time. Powerful yet elegant. Intense nose w/ ripe blackberries, sandalwood, spice with a touch of fresh herbs. So high and low notes, and the palate had a good amount of flesh with lots of tannins to give it backbone, yet the tannins were very fine and soft in the mouth. Also, an interesting side note about 2000, Aymeric de Gironde, New Managing Director, said that this was the first vintage where Cos significantly dropped their yields from around 60 hl/ha to around 40 hl/ha.

As classic as they come. Cassis and blackberry. Slight green peppercorn, leather tack, red flowers, crushed rock. Exactly what I want from this benchmark producer.

Big and rich. Still young with primal fruit. Needs years. Some cedar bark and juniper.
