2008 Saint-Estephe 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

The 2008 late harvest yielded remarkable expressions of grapes. Cool temperatures in the summer brought freshness and liveliness to the 2008 Chateau Cos d'Estournel, while dry weather in September brought concentration and complex aromas.

This Saint-Estephe from Bordeaux is a dark hued 85% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet-Franc. Black fruits, liquorice, and tobacco are easily discernible on the nose. This wine is quite complex and strong -a mark of the terroir- as well as elegant. The palate is well-structured, with pleasant tannins, and striking fruits: delectable and charming. The 2008 Chateau Cos d'Estournel drinks well now or in about 15 years.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Closed but promising, this is a classic Cos revealing lots of tannin along with damp earth, black currant, sweet black cherry, graphite, licorice and truffle characteristics. This medium to full-bodied, structured, firm, broodingly backward, impenetrable effort demands 5-6 years of bottle age; it should drink well for 20-25 years.
