NOTATION

  • (96 - 98)/100 Parker
  • Ageing potential : 2028 - 2060
  • Tasting by Lisa Perrotti-Brown on May 20, 2021 : "The 2020 Cos d'Estournel is composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot. Harvest took place from September 10 to 24 with a yield of 39 hectoliters per hectare. Alcohol weighs 13.46%, pH is 3.9 and TPI (total phenolic index) is 80. It is aged in French oak barrels, 55% of which are new."

 

TERROIR

The vineyard, located on the hillside of Cos, has gentle elevations of up to 20 meters at its peak. 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 40 years old. But the estate also has 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 cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and energy. Young vintages can be decanted for 2 to 4 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open up its flavor. 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 like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.

THE 2020 VINTAGE

How was the year 2020 for Château Cos d'Estournel?

A mild winter, followed by a wet spring with lots of rain. This led to mildew which threatened the vines. Fortunately, the summer that followed was very hot and the disease was avoided. In August, there was a thunderstorm which ensured the renewal of the plant and the ripening of the grapes. This resulted in very good yields.

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.
