    2006 Saint-Estephe 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

    Despite a disappointing end of summer, hot weather from spring and early-summer allowed for the success of the 2006 vintage, which boasts distinctive concentration of Saint-Estephe wines. The 2006 Chateau Cos d'Estournel is 78% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet-Franc. The 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux reveals lovely intensity with spices and liquorice. The palate is elegant and smooth. The tannins impress with great finesse: a great classic.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Blended of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2006 Cos d'Estournel is deep garnet colored with a touch of brick, opening with enticing scents of rosemary-crusted roast lamb, dried cherries, baked blackcurrants and mincemeat pie with touches of fallen leaves, cigar box and pencil lead. Medium-bodied, lively and elegantly played in the mouth, it has a firm backbone of chewy tannins and plenty of mineral accents on the long finish.
