Dear Wine Lover,
Cos d’Estournel has been one of the real standouts of the 2009 Bordeaux vintage and in our opinion the overall best wine of this extraordinary and unique vintage in Bordeaux. We are not the only ones loving this wine: Robert Parker and James Suckling gave it the maximum rating of 100 points, therefore being a 200 points wine!! Other legends which achieved this in the past were Pétrus 1961 (price 13’500.- per bottle), Cheval Blanc 1947 (price 9’900.- per bottle), Haut Brion 1989 (price 1’600.- per bottle) or Yquem 2001 (price 625.- per bottle).
Cos d’Estournel is located just next Ch. Lafite Rothschild and its one of the best alternatives to the 1er Crus! If you compare the prices of the 1st growth 2009 to Cos d’Estournel, you will realize that it is a very smart buy as costs are nearly 1/3 less. This could be a real investment opportunity and an excellent choice if you consider drinking this excellent wine.

Robert Parker 100points: One of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted, the monumental 2009 Cos d’Estournel has lived up to its pre-bottling potential. A remarkable effort from winemaking guru Jean-Guillaume Prats and owner Michel Reybier, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot (33%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%) was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. It boasts an inky/black/purple color along with an extraordinary bouquet of white flowers interwoven with blackberry and blueberry liqueur, incense, charcoal and graphite. The wine hits the palate with extraordinary purity, balance and intensity as well as perfect equilibrium, and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood and alcohol. An iconic wine as well as a remarkable achievement, it is the greatest Cos d’Estournel ever produced. It is approachable enough at present that one could appreciate it with several hours of decanting, but it will not hit its prime for a decade, and should age effortlessly for a half century.
James Suckling 100points: What a fabulous nose of currants, raspberries and Indian spices. Nutmeg and clover. Full-bodied, with an amazing precision and superb compacted fruit. Endless. Laser guided. Shows such intensity. Decadent and rich and changing all the time. Mystical wine. Dense, yet agile. More refined than when I tasted it in November in Hong Kong. Try in 2018.
