Cos d'Estournel 2015 (750ML)
The 2015 Cos d'Estournel is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23.5% Merlot and 1.5% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it offers up black currants, spice cake, warm cherries and plum preserves with touches of chargrill and forest floor. Medium-bodied and very firm with ripe, grainy tannins, it has a good core of earthy fruit, finishing with loads of layers and freshness. (LPB)
94 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Cos d'Estournel is backward and broody on the nose, just like the Pagodes de Cos, but it unfurls nicely in the glass to reveal intense blackberry, graphite and light tobacco aromas. The oak is nicely integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive depth, well-judged acidity and plenty of tobacco-infused black fruit. I appreciate that this embraces the character of Saint-EstÃ¨phe with that earthy, almost ferrous finish coming through on the grippy finish. Yes, there remains a slight sense of conservatism toward the finish and granted, it is predestined to be overshadowed by the exemplary 2016. Yet this is a fine Cos d'Estournel that should give 20 to 25 years of drinking pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2020 - 2040." (02/2018)
Easily one of the most successful wine in Saint EstÃ¨phe in 2015, Cos d'Estournel is just gorgeous. Elements of exoticism appear on the bouquet, followed by generous black cherry, smoke, leather, licorice, menthol and mocha. Naturally, it will be many years before the 2015 is ready to offer a truly complete drinking experience, but it is superb even in the early going. The 2015 was bottled in July 2017. (AG)
98 Points, James Suckling: "Super aromas of nutmeg, cloves and dried flowers with plums and blackberries. Subtle yet so complex. Full-bodied, tight and integrated with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Lasts for minutes. Very, very Cos. Harmony. Texturally marvellous. Drink in 2024." 2/18
While this wine is rich, it has a classical demeanor, with fine tannins that support but never dominate the ripe black fruits. Full of juicy acidity, it offers black currants and some fine, firm tannins at the end. This will take some time to mature, and the wine will not be ready to drink before 2027. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
Rich fruit that is full of that classic exotic Cos spice, yet more restrained than in the past with a slatey graphite base. Beautifully put together; an exciting wine that will grow in complexity and flavour. (SS)
The 2015 Cos D'Estournel is a classic wine from this estate and a terrific effort from the northern MÃ©doc. Compared to both 2007 and 2004 by the estate and representing only 39% of the total production, it offers a fresh, classy bouquet of crÃ¨me de cassis, black raspberries, toasty oak, graphite and damp earth. Made from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, this medium to full-bodied 2015 has solid mid-palate depth, fine, polished tannin, and a great finish. It's going to improve with short-term cellaring and keep for two decades.
