1982 Chateau Cos d’Estournel

$2,450.00

Chateau Cos d’Estournel is found in the southern-most part of Saint-Estephe, neighbouring the region of Pauillac. Founded in 1810, it has a long and rich winemaking history. The majority of the vineyard features Cabernet Sauvignon, however Cos d’Estournel add more Merlot to their blends. As a result, the tannins are a little less astringent, softening the mouthfeel. 

1982 was an outstanding year for the red wines of St Estephe. A unusually warm September brought harvest forward and the grapes were ripe and high in concentration. The wines produced are age-worthy with a rich and opulent mouthfeel of great intensity. 

The 1982 Chateau Cos d’Estournel has complex aromas of red berry fruits and tar mixed with smokey spice. It also has a long palate featuring floral and earthy notes alongside cigar box and liquorice. The tannins have softened with age, giving a silky mouthfeel with a medium to full body. After 38 years, this wine is at optimum maturity but is of such a quality it can still be cellared for years to come.  

This wine is a perfect match to crispy-skinned, roasted duck breast and cherry red wine jus.
