Château Cos D'Estournel 2008

Start the loose soil. Less clay. Wines tannic, full-bodied and with good acidity.

Château Cos D'Estournel 2008

The 2008 vintage is the result of very contrasted climatic conditions: The first half of the year capricious oscillating between a mild winter and a fresh spring start
July is a rather dry month, causing positive stress on some plots and a beautiful and ventilated September where winds from north and east have finished clearing and ripening the grapes
The winter of 2008 is rather mild and allows an early start of the vegetation, at the beginning of March
However, the beginning of spring, especially fresh, will slow the growth
The veraison is spread over the first half of August
The climatic conditions of September - strong winds from the north and east - have the effect of dehydrating the berries and have an impact on the particularly low yields of this vintage

These yields have been the lowest in Cos d'Estournel since 1991
The good weather in September has allowed a good health of the berries and allows us to envisage a late harvest in order to seek an optimal maturity polyphenolic.

Château Cos D'Estournel 2008

Château Cos d'Estournel 2008 is a great wine from Saint-Estèphe, 2nd Grand Cru Classé. The cool conditions and ventilated summer 2008 contributed to this vintage freshness and vivacity while the second half of September, particularly dry, gave concentration and aromatic complexity. Dark color, notes of black fruits, licorice and tobacco on the nose. This is a complex wine that is both powerful and finesse, elegant and velvety on the palate. 2008 is the first vintage in the new winery of Château Cos d'Estournel. Born in 1762 under Louis XV and died in 1853 under Napoleon III, age then outstanding of 91, Louis Joseph Gaspard Lacoste Maniban Marquis d'Estournel had only one passion: Cos.

Smells good, licorice and violet aromas. In the mouth it is thick enough.
If you like powerful wines, you already know.

Cos d'Estournel 2014
We did not choose the proper food, but the wine was good. Brought by a friend and I opened it with him.
Cherry red. Aromas of dried fruits. I left the bottle opened for a couple of days and got spoiled.

Château Cos d Estournel 2013
Cherry blossom colour, very opaque. In the nose, red fruit and green pepper. The main flavour is coffee.
A red that suits good with moussaka.
I drank it with a business client.
