CHÂTEAU COS D'ESTOURNEL
2002 2ème Cru Classé Saint Estèphe
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot|
|Classification||2ème Cru Classé|
Swirled in the glass this resembles a huge and perfect ‘black’ tulip, the deepest purple-black. Lots of spicy wood shows first on the nose, which then fills out, rich and full, as it is too on the palate. Huge concentration, volume and class, with great length. Very dense, very tannic, this will take time, but it is one of the wines of the vintage. L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
One of the candidates for wine of the vintage, this beauty has a dense purple color to the rim and a classic, noble nose of graphite intermixed with black currant, spice box, licorice, and red and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied with exceptional precision and definition, this beautifully textured wine stands out as one of the most successful wines of this irregular vintage. A brilliant effort, it should be at its best between 2008 and 2020. Rating: 93-93 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Mar 2005)
