Buyer Review
  1. Geoff Pattison
    Deep healthy ruby red in color. This leaps from the glass with pure, exuberant primary red fruit mixed with turned earth and hints of herbal notes. Broad in the mouth with nice flesh and a rock solid midpalate. Finishes with fine grained tannins and a beautifully elegant finish. At 13% ABV this is really coming back to a more classical style that recalls some of the great Cos d'Estournels of the 1990s. Superb.
  • 100 Wine Advocate Notes

    The 2016 Cos d'Estournel is blended of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc aged in 65% new and 35% two-year-old French oak for 15 months. Bottled in July 2018, it is deep garnet-purple colored and starts off a little closed and reticent, opening out slowly and seductively to reveal beautiful lilacs, rose hip tea, crushed stones and camphor nuances over a core of crme de cassis, kirsch, wild blueberries and mocha plus wafts of incense and wood smoke. The palate is simply electric, charged with an energy and depth of flavors that seem to defy the elegance and ethereal nature of its medium-bodied weight, featuring super ripe, densely pixelated tannins that firmly frame the myriad of fruit and floral sparks, finishing with epic length. Just. Magic.-Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
