Château Cos d’Estournel, Saint-Estèphe 2019

RRP £129

Tasted blind with other wines from this northern Médoc appellation, the blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot projects wonderful aromatic complexity ranging from juicy blackberry and crushed stone to opulent cassis and subtle sage and incense. Refined tannin and ripe fruit bring forth precise yet sumptuous, palate-filling texture, with superb oak integration. Long finish; built for cellaring. Aged in 55% new oak.
