Chateau Cos d'Estournel St. Estephe 1996
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
|Brand||Chateau Cos d'Estournel|
Wine SpectatorLots of tobacco, berry and spice character on the nose. Light herbal undertone. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a caressing, pretty-textured finish. Chewy. I would wait a little. 1995 looks better to me now. Outstanding but not as exciting as I remember.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008.
