The exceptional 2006 Cos d'Estournel is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot, 55% of the production was utilized. Revealing superb intensity for a 2006 as well as an inky/blue/purple color, and a sweet bouquet of blue and black fruits, licorice, graphite, and charcoal, this full-bodied 2006 possesses high levels of sweet tannin. This wine is characterized by a freshness and precision that give it a 1996-like affinity. Enjoy this beautifully concentrated, exceptionally pure, statuesque Cos d'Estournel over the next 20-25 years. By the way, it was bottled without any fining or filtration. Drink now-2034.

Tasted at 15 vintage vertical dinner : 2006 Cos d'Estournel was wild with lots of forest floor, truffles and grilled meats on the nose, and muscular body.
