Chateau Cos D’Estournel St-Estephe 2002

Chateau Cos D’Estournel St-Estephe 2002

$368.00

The 2002 Cos d’Estournel is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. This vintage was late ripening with wonderful weather in September and very low yields this year. Deep garnet colored with a touch of brick, the palate sports tobacco, cedar chest and yeast extract scents over a core of figs, dried mulberries, fruitcake, saut?ed herbs and cinnamon toast with a waft of oolong tea. Medium-bodied, the palate features bags of freshness, with firm yet grainy tannins and plenty of mature dried berry flavors, finishing long and spicy.

A refined and pretty wine now with spice, berry and chocolate character on the nose and palate. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Subtle spice aftertaste. Underrated wine. Drink now.

MERLOT: 38%
CABERNET FRANC: 3%
PETIT VERDOT: 1%

With a yield whose weakness surprised the teams, a very nice balance between Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon was obtained. The soft and velvety attack continues with a very persistent spicy finale, in a noble expression of tobacco and incense. It is this oriental character we retain, and which fully expresses a great Cos d?Estournel.
