Equiv. £60.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

This is classic Cos from a great vintage, with all the power and finesse you would expect, combined with the delicate oriental spice that is so much a feature of this chateau’s greatest wines. A half-and-half blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with 5% of press wine added, the wine has a full nose of minerals, pepper and spice, with lots of ripe cassis behind. The palate is dominated by clean, pure fruit flavours, edged with hints of peppery undergrowth. The tannins are very ripe, rounded and accessible, the finish impeccably smooth and polished. As you will see below, this wine is understudy to one of the leading players of the vintage.
