TN: 2003 Chateau Cos d'Estournel (France, Bordeaux, Medoc, St. Estephe)

This wine was shared with me tonight by a very generous friend as it was his birthday and mine is coming up soon. We also shared a glass of '96 Dom Perignon which was singing.

  • 2003 Château Cos d'Estournel - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Estèphe (11/5/2008)
    Opened and tasted. Poured and drank 2 hours later. Deep purple color with coffee, black currant, blackberry, vanilla and some sweet wood on the nose. On the palate there are concentrated, very tight black fruits, tobacco, a touch of mint/eucalyptus was very prominent. The tannins were actually in check at this young age and the balance on the wine is near-perfect. A baby by all means, I wouldn't open this until at least 2020 and enjoy it as long as the wine lasts! This rating is based on the wine as it is today- I foresee this becoming something very, very special with due time. (95 pts.)
