Château Cos d’Estournel 2002 – 2nd Cru Classé, Saint-Estèphe

Château Cos d’Estournel 2002 – 2nd Cru Classé, Saint-Estèphe

The nose offers notes of small black berries, ripe black fruit (blackcurrant, cherry, blackberry, prune), warm spices, licorice and leather. In mouth the wine is aromatic, elegant, well-balanced, racy, complex and silky. It expresses a nice minerality. Tannins are well integrated and melted. Finally this wine offers a beautiful harmony, a good balance between power and finesse, freshness and beautiful fruity aromas (black fruits mixed with a few discreet red fruits). The finish is long and persistent. Drink between now and 8 years.
