Description

Château Cos d'Estournel 1996
St. Estèphe, 2ème Cru Classé
Lot 7520: Tissue wrapped, slightly damaged lid, Lot 7521: Slightly damaged lid

At 12 years old, just so blackberry on the nose - but decant to give it maximum air. Real Cabernet backbone - this year the Cabernet Sauvignon content was 65% (to 35% Merlot), up 5% on the usual mix. Absolute succulence behind the severity of the vintage, with a totally 'black' character. In 2010, this is minty, fresh, cedary and with great depth. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
