    February 14, 2019 - Decanted for an hour. After 3, this started to sing. Wait 3-5 years for other bottle.

    February 10, 2019 - Even better than expected

    January 28, 2019 - Explosive nose with earthy flavors, cigar, leather; full on palate, com0lex, well integrated tannins, medium finish. Drinking window wide open now.

    January 28, 2019 - I TRE TENORI (WESTIN MILANO): Naso fotonico, esplosivo, ma precisissimo, davvero millimetrico. Tanta spezia del Cabernet, pepe, grafite, molto frutto del Merlot e tanta tanta eleganza. Da starci ore, godendo la bellezza di un millesimo setoso, pieno e maturo.
    La bocca è di corpo, ma piuttosto filante, tutto al posto giusto e in attesa della fine di un' adolescenza che durerà ancora almeno un decennio.
    Fattura da manuale, ma privo dell' anima dei grandi vecchi Bordeaux e dell' emozione che regala De Montille

    January 26, 2019 - This felt very young to me. It came off a little modern, ripe, and forward for a Cos d'Estournel - maybe just needs a little more time. There is good structure here and the fruit is not in danger of fading anytime soon. The wine is just starting to develop some tertiary notes at this point. Everything does seem to be coming together and ageing nicely, albeit slowly. This wine will definitely benefit from some more cellaring. Revisit in 3 years.

Rockss and Fruit

  • By Lyle Fass
    10/4/2004 (link)

    (Cos d'Estournel) Cocoa, raspberry liquor and complex mineral tones on the nose. Lush and glyceril with dense, silky primary fruit. Black fruits with a red streak. Pretty elegant and does a little mambo on the palate. Super concentrated but done in a kind of "spoofilated" new-world style. Very different and less traditional than the '95 Cos the other week. I still liked it
