Cos d' Estournel 2008 Saint Estephe

This is from a classic Bordeaux year with a gorgeous nose of currant, gravel, plum, and a just there note of cedar and oak. The palate has well integrated tannins with good presence and a flavor set of plum, currant, cedar and gravely minerality. Quite classic St. Estephe. Tasted 10/21/2021 D&M Tasting Notes

The 2008 Cos d’Estournel had one of the most backward, reticent bouquets that I encountered during my tasting. This is so sultry and broody, begrudgingly offering some lovely brambly red fruit mixed with pencil box. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, plenty of black fruit laced with allspice, black pepper and sage, leading to a dense and concentrated finish that should see this age for 20 or 30 years. It does not really serve as a forerunner to the blockbuster 2009 because this is cut from a completely different cloth. (Tasted at BI Wine & Spirit’s annual 10-Year On tasting.)  94 PointsNeal Martin, Vinous February 2018
