2004 Château Cos d'Estournel - Saint-Estèphe Grand Cru Classé - 3 Bottles (0.75L)
Red wine - France - 94/100 points, Robert Parker

More Cabernet than usual; even more than the 2003. Mocha aromas mixed with smoke and spice. Cola nuances also. Great structure and power. Very long - tons of everything. One of the best of 2004. The nose has certainly closed down since I last tasted it at en primeur, less floral and more tertiary with a surly broody quality. Cedar and a hint of dark chocolate coming through with aeration, roasted herbs. Very well defined. The full-bodied palate is very tannic structure with a solidity that suggests extended cellaring is mandatory. This Cos d’Estournel is powerful and masculine, yet with wonderful freshness and vitality and a slight savoury tang evolving with further aeration on the persistent finish.

Bottles have been storage in a professional wine cellar with constant temperature and humidity control
