Cos d’Estournel 2018 – Saint Estèphe Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, racy and offers a beautiful grain, precision, concentration (full of finesse), a fine power and deepness. It reveals notes of ripe wild blackberry, pulpy wild cassis and small notes of violet associated with touches of crushed strawberry, blueberry, small crushed red berries as well as hints of racy minerality, primerose, liquorice stick, nutmeg, pepper and tobacco. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, full of finesse (like a square of silk) and offers juiciness, an acidulous frame, gourmandize, a beautiful definition, tension, generosity, a small aerial side, a beautiful grain as well as a fine creaminess and richness (full of subtility/control). On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy/fleshy cassis, wild strawberry and small notes of cherry associated with touches of small wild red berries as well as hints of tonka bean, mild tobacco and toasted hazelnut. Good length. Tannins are elegant and precise. A beautiful suave and sapid persistence.
