Tasting Notes
Robert Parker 93
A beautiful effort, the 2001 Cos d?Estournel (65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot) exhibits a poised, noble bouquet of black currants, cedar, spice box, and licorice. A hint of truffles emerges as it sits in the glass. Medium-bodied with sweet fruit (mostly black) and nicely integrated wood, it builds incrementally in the mouth, ending with a 50-second finish. Drink this stylish, restrained yet substantial claret over the next 15+ years.
Neal Martin, Wine Journal, eRobert Parker 92
Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index?s 10-Year On horizontal. There is a fine level of sweetness on the nose with red rather than black fruits: cranberry leaf and raspberry with a touch of wild strawberry and orange rind developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with great depth and structure. Blackberry, smoke, cooked meat and crushed stone, finely poised towards the finish that has a wonderful symmetry. Lovely. Tasted March 2011.
