Case of 12 x 75cl
Very appealing and complex with intense, multi-layered aromas of cassis, dried summer fruits and exotic spices with notes of minerals and sweet tobacco. The palate is wonderfully layered with a bold, almost masculine, structure and yet the fruit is sweet and pure. Redcurrant and cassis fruits intermingle elegantly with exotic spices, an energetic acidity and seamless tannins. This is a very refined and elegant wine; a great Cos! Drink 2021 ¿ 2040
Reviews & Scores
2010 Cos d¿Estournel: Representing 55% of the production and cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare, Cos d¿Estournel¿s final blend in 2010 is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and the rest tiny portions of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Compared to the massive 2009 (14.6% natural alcohol), the 2010 achieved slightly less alcohol, but also a lower pH, which accounts for its more tannic, backward, huge style. An inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas of damp earth, black currants, blackberries, licorice and charcoal. Firm, thick and super-concentrated, it is another outrageously impressive wine that will require 6-10 years of cellaring. It should keep for 30+ years. It is somewhat 2005-ish in its structure and palate impression.
