2011 cos d'estournel 2eme cru classe, saint-estephe
Why We're Buying
Château Cos d'Estournel works within the classic style of the Left Bank to produce a unique cabernet sauvignon blend. The second-growth features nearly 40% merlot, an uncommon ratio for the region.
Powerful, very rich and very concentrated, this epitomizes the opulent style of Cos d’Estournel. A sense of extraction is overwhelmed by the huge, ripe fruit. It shows velvet texture at first, but then the tannins come on strongly, leaving a wine that will age over many years. Drink from 2022.
