Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 17+

Tasted blind. Deep ruby colour. Cured meats, black pepper and summer fruits on the nose. Graphite and cassis on the palate, together with more of that meaty oak spice. Fairly rich and ripe for the vintage, with lots of exotic spice character and wood tannin. An attempt to be plush that is fairly successful – it retains the better elements of freshness in the vintage. (TP) [16/09/2021]

Robert Parker – 98

Composed of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, yields for the grand vin in 2017 were 43 hectoliters per hectare, and it was aged in 60% new oak. It came in at an alcohol of 13% and an IPT of 68. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cos d’Estournel needs a little coaxing to unfurl, revealing beautiful expressions of preserved plums, boysenberries, blackcurrant pastilles and wild blueberries with hints of Indian spices, menthol, lilacs and mossy tree bark plus a compelling suggestion of iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and well-knit freshness supporting the tightly wound blue and black fruits layers, finishing long and fragrant. This wine will need a good 5-7 years in bottle before it begins to blossom and should go on for at least another 40 years. I expect this wine to be a blockbuster of a head-turner when I come back and taste it at 10 years of age! [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 28/02/2020]
