Cos d´Estournel 2011 (95JS) (1.5L)
90-92 WA 90 WS
"A dense, refined wine, with blueberries, blackberries and spices. Full body with integrated tannins and a polished texture. Love the mouthfeel to this. Extremely well done for the vintage, considering the hail in St Estephe....95" JS 02/14 “Powerful tannins are embedded into this wine’s huge velvet cushion of ripe black plum, spiced fruit and chocolate. The wine shows the juicy character of the vintage, which follows right to the end with firm tannins..94-96” Wine Enthusiast 4/12 "Because of a smaller than normal crop as well as the elimination of vineyard parcels devastated by the hail storm of September 1, production for Cos d’Estournel in 2011 is the smallest since 1991. Production for the 2011 Cos d’Estournel (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol) is about 30% of their normal volume. An outstanding effort, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine exhibits notes of lead pencil shavings, black currants, boysenberries, cedar and earth. Made in a traditional style with more acidity and noticeable tannin than in recent years, this medium-bodied, pure 2011 should drink nicely for 15+ years...90-92" WA 04/12 "Offers ample, almost flashy fruit, with layers of fig, boysenberry and blackberry pâte de fruit rushing forth, lined with anise and toasted spice details. Stays flattering through the finish and will win some fans, but lacks the grip and density for the long haul. ...90" WS 03/14
