ABOUT THE WINE
With its unusual towers alluding to the Taj Mahal (the wines of the estate were immensely popular on the Indian subcontinent throughout the early years of production), the Chateau Cos d'Estournel is something of a landmark in the Medoc. Undoubtedly the leading estate in Saint-Estephe, it is named after Louis-Gaspard d'Estournel, the 19th Century owner responsible for its unique architecture. Located on the border of Pauillac, just north of Lafite, on a south-facing gravel-rich ridge (the Cos hill, Old-Gascon for pebbles), the estate consists of 84 hectares of vines, with some Merlot vines over 100 years old. Classified 2eme Cru, the estate is rightly lauded for its full-bodied, age-worthy, brooding wines which rival any of the First Growths.

TASTING NOTES
A superstar vintage for this estate. Medium to full-bodied, with stunning precision and utterly enchanting texture on the palate. Dense blackcurrant, earthy spice, liquorice and graphite minerality, with succulent red and black fruit. The finish lingers achingly, with truffle, smoke and fresh, spiced cassis.

FOOD PAIRING
A wine of sufficient poise to pair excellently with a wide range of beef dishes, from carpaccio to a hearty stew.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A wine which benefits from an hour in the decanter; exceptional quality; a magnificent drinking-pleasure.
