Wine Information, Reviews & Tasting Notes One of the famed Super Seconds of Bordeaux, Cos dEstournel is the trademark of Saint Estèphe. With its pagoda like house (one of the rare Bordeauxs without a Château) it is a must visit for all travelling along the route des châteaux. Always of great reputation, the wines soared in esteem throughout the tenure of Bruno Prats through 1971 to 1998 and continue to this day with their Cabernet Sauvignon based wines of extreme purity and elegance. 1986 is big and rich with a still youthful palate, a hallmark of the aging ability of this wine. Winemakers Notes 1986 is a vintage marked by an extremly dry summer and by harvesting carried out in ideal conditions. Very intense colour which as yet has scarcely developed. Very complete bouquet which is still closed up; spices, liquorice, cedar wood. Its structure with fine tannin is huge and the wine has full, rich flesh. Very long in the mouth. A virile wine with a future to be laid down in the cellar for many long years, but it may tasted today with game or red meats. Bloody, dense, murky garnet. Faint bricking at the outermost edge. Lovely, maturing bouquet dominated by damp forest floor and rounded out by bright, high toned cedar, juniper, sweet soy sauce, plum, and cassis. The palate is more youthful than the nose portends. Theres a faint touch of sweetness up front, but the tannins are still rather firm. The structure is there for a long life Shipping Delivery Information: We are not in the market to make money out of postage.
