Chateau Cos d'Estournel 2010

 A case of 6 Bottles (750ML)

This 2010 Cos d'Estournel is beautiful, deep crimson colour. Inside this Saint-Estephe, notes of blackberries and liquorice. Powerful on the palate. An extremely precise wine. Worth waiting for! The 2010 vintage was the product of an exceptional combination of dry weather - 2010 was the driest year of the decade - and rather cool temperatures - with the coldest May for five years. 2020-2040 and beyond...

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2010 Cos d'Estournel is deep garnet with a touch of purple and comes at you like a variegated scent wall with profound notions of blackcurrant cordial, chocolate-covered cherries, spearmint, cigar box and hoisin plus suggestions of praline, charcoal and espresso. Full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with layer upon layer of black and red fruits plus tons of savory accents and a firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins, finishing very, very long, carrying great freshness and a beautiful spearmint lift. It's a lot like the 2005 but with the volume turned up here. These 2010s are truly locked in a time capsule.
