Château Cos d'Estournel Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

A beautiful effort, the 2001 Cos d'Estournel (65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot) exhibits a poised, noble bouquet of black currants, cedar, spice box, and licorice. A hint of truffles emerges as it sits in the glass. Medium-bodied with sweet fruit (mostly black) and nicely integrated wood, it builds incrementally in the mouth, ending with a 50-second finish. Drink this stylish, restrained yet substantial claret over the next 15+ years. Robert Parker

Musty, old-suitcase, EA. Similar to the other bottle of the same from tonight.

Killer! Textbook G.C.C. In a great evolutionary spot with a notably long, expansive, finish.

A little tight could take a few more years in the bottle. #cabernetsauvignon #bordeaux #cos #wineporn #FWC

So good. Super second my ass. This wine is so delicious year in and out regardless of vintage. A total bargain compared to its thieving neighbors

2001 is still young on this gem. Eucalyptus, blackberries and cassis on nose. Dark bing cherry and toasted cocoa nibs on mid palate. Finish with dry elegance with slight cinnamon spice in end.
