    (Chateau Cos d'Estournel St Estèphe) This is a real contrast to Calon, with a pure, ethereal and complex perfume of fruit and flowers on the nose, overlaid with grainy, honeyed oak, and just a few elements of charcoal. The palate is very polished at first, but then reveals a slightly coarser element with a huge core of tannins. Lovely flavour of fruit though. Lots of structure, lovely fresh acidity, and no doubt great potential for the future. An excellent result but it needs 10-15 years.

    (Chateau Cos d'Estournel) COLOR-dark; NOSE-some black cherry, leather & Asian spice, but quite tight right now; TASTE-great complexity; bright cherries are coming through; the polish is intense; I still taste the lingering finish on this classic Bordeaux; the back-end tannins completely convince me that this wine has the potential age for 50+ years; an amazing freshness; as this wine develops, I'm looking forward to the 2nd tier flavors on the mid-palate; dark fruits dominate this wine (black cherries & black fruit); the finish is staggeringly long; this is textbook & classic Bordeaux; great effort; GV-98+
