Château Cos d'Estournel 1999

 

Saint-Estèphe - 2ème Grand Cru Classé 

 

 TERROIR

The 100 hectare vineyard of Château Cos d'Estournel is planted with 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. This shows a slight increase in the amount of Merlot planted in the vineyard. The vineyard, located on the hillside of Cos, has gentle elevations of up to 20 metres at its summit. It is located near the border between Pauillac and Saint Estephe, at the southern end of the Saint Estephe appellation. The vines are on average about forty years old. But the estate also has some very old Merlot vines, which are over 100 years old. Part of the terroir is located on the hill of Cos, where some of their best terroirs are found.

  

SERVICE 

Château Cos d'Estournel is best served at 15.5°C. The cooler, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and energy. Young vintages can be decanted for 2-4 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open up its flavour. Older vintages may need a little decanting, just enough to remove sediment.

 

FOOD AND WINE PAIRING

Château Cos d'Estournel goes well with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, braised and grilled dishes. Cos d'Estournel also goes well with Asian dishes, hearty fish dishes such as tuna, mushrooms and pasta.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
