This is the second label of famed Chateau Cos d'Estournel.
The 2012 has very well-integrated, polished tannins, excellent purity and depth, and is quite open and expressive. Good length and structure. It gives you a nibble of the Grand Vin for less money. The palate features red and black fruits, graphite, spice, cassis and chocolate. Is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, beef, lamb, duck, game; braised or grilled.
