Château Cos d’Estournel 2012 – Saint-Estèphe, 2ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic, elegant and quite pure. It reveals notes of undergrowth, tobacco and slight notes of mocha, liquorice associated with hints of crushed blackberry, cassis, slight notes of wood as well as a discreet hint of flower and Sichuan pepper. The mouth is fruity, round, ample and offers fat, a nice minerality, opulence, a certain richness as well as fleshy fruits. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of cassis, blackberry and slight notes of crushed cherry, raspberry combined with fine touches of small red berries, hints of toasted oak, cardamom, a point of clove, spices, licorice stick, cigar and a very slight / discreet hint of cocoa (in the background). Tannins are fine and young. Good length. There is a slight hint of Sichuan pepper and a very discreet hint of gravely earth. Good potential (wait 5 years).
