  • 2003 Château Cos d'Estournel - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Estèphe (8/19/2011)
    Decanted in the glass for a period of over one hour. The nose offers classic Bordeaux nuances coupled with flowers and cigar box. The palate offers everything I want in Bordeaux. Amazingly ripe fruit while still maintaining classic character. I am not sure what the controversy is about this wine – it is not over the top at all. For lack of a better descriptor; the wine simply tastes delicious and is special while maintaining its sense of place. The finish is lengthy - full of cigar and delicious fruit, all coupled with round tannin. Delicious wine, and re-enforces my love of Bordeaux. Worth the price; I need to backfill. Drink with a decant or continue to hold for 10+ years. (94 pts.)
