Tasting Notes

Score: 95Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

Score: 95Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (3), November 1998

A wine of extraordinary intensity and accessibility, the 1995 Cos d'Estournel is a sexier, more hedonistic offering than the muscular, backward 1996. Opulent, with forward aromatics (gobs of black fruits intermixed with toasty pain grillé scents and a boatload of spice), this terrific Cos possesses remarkable intensity, full-body, and layers of jammy fruit nicely framed by the wine's new oak. Because of low acidity and sweet tannins, the 1995 will be difficult to resist young, although it will age for 2-3 decades.

Score: 95Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (115), February 1998
