TASTING NOTES

"Very great classic style, so different to some of the more recent vintages, on noble notes of cedar and spices, with all the body and complexity of a premier cru. Built on 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, which explains its structure, and 23% Merlot." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"The finish is something else here. This is a wine that’s so powerful and tannic yet at the same time so polished and superb on the finish. Full-bodied, beautifully crafted and precise. This is a wine that really grabs your attention. The agility and power are more than impressive. Wow is the word." JamesSuckling.com

"The beautiful 2016 Cos d'Estournel is one of the most polished, gracious young Cos d'Estournels I can remember tasting. Aromatic freshness and lift, along with a distinctly red fruit profile, are among the signatures. It will be interesting to see if this style of Cos - one in which concentration and textural richness are backed off - is the result of the vintage or an evolution in winemaking philosophy, or perhaps, as is most likely, a little bit of both." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Energy and raciness on the nose. Gentle and lifted. And then lots of tannins underneath. Fresh almost sandy tannins. Good energy and tea-leaf sensation. Excellent freshness. Long. Restrained. Elegant. 13.07%." JancisRobinson.com
