Flight 1 (4 Notes)

  • 2000 Château Cos d'Estournel 92 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Estèphe

    Open 4 hours. Powerful wine. Raspberries, other dark fruits and sweet tones on the still fairly closed nose. Classic, abundant fruits, minerals, coffee, long lingering and many tannins. More made on power than elegance.

  • 2000 Château Pontet-Canet 93 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac

    Opened 3 hours. Very elegant and classic Bordeaux. Luxurious on the palate with minerals and chocolate - quite some pleasant bitter tones. Nose shows classic Cabernet tones with multiple berries, chocolate and licorice candies. Needs some more time.

  • 2000 Château Giscours 94 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux

    Opened 4 hours. Still young in its appearance. Full and elegant with fruits and graphite tones. Well delineated. Long finish.

  • 1990 Château Mouton Rothschild 93 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac

    Concentration on the nose, dark sweet tones with chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some green tones. Ripe fruit and secondary tones on the palate. Long aftertaste with well integrated tannins. Beautiful bottle, better than 2 earlier bottles we had, but missing the power you expect from Mouton Rothschild.
