A well-balanced, savoury, and elegant red wine from Saint-Estephe2nd classified growth from the appellation Saint-Estephe, the Château Cos d’Estournel 2000 is a red wine consisting of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Often called a « super second », this wine possesses a strong aristocratic and exotic personality thanks to a terroir that is rich in gravel.
The Château Cos d’Estournel 2000 in its youth reveals splendid notes of caramelised fruit and sweet spices. However, this wine is very round. A fresh and flexible wine; it emits exceptional aromatic flavours and is very well-balanced.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Showing some lightening at the edges as well as some amber, this is the least impressive of the greatest vintages for Cos d'Estournel between 2000 and 2009. It is an outstanding wine, but it is closer to maturity and lacking the concentration, texture, and overall compelling aromatics of more recent vintages. The wine displays roasted herbs intermixed with licorice, incense, black cherry, and black currant fruit. Medium-bodied, rather than full, elegant, with some spicy tannins and a nice sweet finish, compared to the other top classified growths, this wine is on a much faster evolutionary track and can be drunk now and over the next 15 or more years.
