2006 Saint-Estephe 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

Despite a disappointing end of summer, hot weather from spring and early-summer allowed for the success of the 2006 vintage, which boasts distinctive concentration of Saint-Estephe wines. The 2006 Chateau Cos d'Estournel is 78% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet-Franc. The 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux reveals lovely intensity with spices and liquorice. The palate is elegant and smooth. The tannins impress with great finesse: a great classic.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château Cos d'Estournel has a far superior bouquet to the Montrose, much more fruit intensity with ferrous red berry fruit, hints of undergrowth and Indian spice (most appropriate!). The palate is medium-bodied with supple Merlot-driven savory red fruit, a little grainy in texture with moderate depth, leading to a spicy finish that seems quite forward for a Cos d'Estournel at this juncture. There is no harm in drinking this now, though I wager that it will offer another ten years of pleasure. Just don't expect it to be your favorite Cos d'Estournel in recent years. Tasted January 2016.
