Winemaker's comments:

A very nice balance between Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon was obtained. The soft and velvety attack continues with a very persistent spicy finale, in a noble expression of tobacco and incense. It is this oriental character we retain, and which fully expresses a great Cos d’Estournel.

Winemaker's comments:

"One of the superstars of the vintage. It offers an opaque ruby/purple hue as well as notes of incense, camphor, licorice, creme de cassis and graphite. Full-bodied, opulent, incredibly fresh and well-delineated, it can be consumed now and over the next decade. Kudos to the team at Cos d’Estournel." WA

Winemaker's comments:

"Deep garnet in color with a touch of brick, the nose is still very youthful, sporting notions of plum preserves, blackcurrant cordial and Black Forest cake with hints of garrigue, wild sage, charcuterie, black olives and unsmoked cigars. The medium to full-bodied palate is generously fruited with bags of earthy and black fruit preserves layers, framed by chewy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long." WA

Winemaker's comments:

Cos d’Estournel 2005 unveils an exceptional harmony, a dazzling nature able to generate great emotions. It is a wine of impressive aromatic complexity, where aromatic and velvety powers combine with a great length. It offers a remarkable potential for ageing.

Winemaker's comments:

While Cos d’Estournel 2006 has required a delay in opening, the wine reveals itself today as absolutely pleasant and smooth. The tannins remain powerful and lengthened, in a wonderful concentration, the freshness and vividness of the aromas balancing perfectly this vintage. The shiny side of the fruit stands out particularly for this wine, energetic and delicious at the same time.

Winemaker's comments:

"Pow! The nose explodes with notes of baked cherries, preserved plums, fried herbs, beef drippings and warm cassis with wafts of wood smoke, salami and tobacco leaf. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and earthy/savory in character, sporting beautifully ripe, grainy tannins and bags of freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note." WA
