Chateau Cos d'Estournel 2012

An unctuous red wine from Saint-Estephe

The Cos d'Estournel estate extends over 91 hectares. This 2nd classified growth of Saint-Estephe contains a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine is aged in barrels, 70% of which are of new oak.

At tasting, the nose of this wine reveals many aromas, especially notes of graphite, crushed stone, blackberry and blackcurrant. On the palate, the Chateau Cos d'Estournel 2012 is rather full-bodied, structured, but with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Its great aging potential makes it possible to keep this wine until 2022 or even later.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2012 Cos d'Estournel is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. It has a deep garnet-purple color and reveals expressive black cherries, black raspberries and red and black plums scents with subtler notes of cassis, menthol, pencil lead and cigar box plus a touch of lavender. Medium-bodied and elegantly styled, with a rock-solid frame of chewy tannins, it delivers a lively lift on the long finish. This is a lovely wine with slightly chewier tannins and less stuffing than the 2011. Needs 4-5 years.
