Tasting Note:

Cos d'Estournel 2010 continues the modern theme, but this is not nearly as controversial as the magnificent 2009. A feature of the cool growing season has been the freshness and acidity in the 2010s. This is certainly apparent in the Cos. There is still huge extract and concentration, but the wine benefits from real lift in the form of fresh, balancing acidity. A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. On the nose there are notes of fine herbs, cool cassis, graphite, cut flowers, crème de mûre and sweet earth. Fabulously concentrated with massive extract, unctuous cassis and flashy ripe dark berry fruit. This is a show stopping Cos; dense yet slick and refreshing thanks to the low pH. A polished, seductive, multilayered Cos; more classic than the 2009 and equally good.
