Château Cos d'Estournel Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$375

The 2009 Cos d'Estournel is one of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted...in the world! An extraordinary effort I tasted on two separate occasions...It will be a legendary claret that should last for 50-60 years. A black/purple color is accompanied by aromas of graphite, ink, creme de cassis, blackberries, cedar, and incense. Full-bodied and unctuously textured, with an ethereal personality, tons of nuances, and a burgeoning complexity, it is an enormously well-endowed, fresh, perfectly balanced tour de force in winemaking. As mentioned above, it should drink well for 50-60 years. This wine possesses this vintage's classic characteristics of enormous power, massive fruit, and extraordinary freshness and precision - largely unprecedented, particularly for Cabernet-based wines in the Medoc. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2070. Robert Parker

Plum and black fruit, some red / new world-forward and quite modern. Not to mention delicious

99+/100. Flirting with perfection. Might be one in 5 to 6 years. Huge aging potential.

Spectacular. A little tight initially and opened up to amazing pepper, bold dark fruit, and sublimely complex finish with a hint of gravel. And it’s only getting better.

I loved this! Increadible mix of silky smooth texture, exotic spices yet great depth and density.

말이 필요없는 정말 맛있는 보르도 대표와인 특히 2009는 rp100으로 좀 단단해서 병 브리딩을 3시간 정도 했더니 화려하게 피어올랐음
