2005 Cos d'Estournel is intense, with a deep crimson colour. The nose presents extraordinary aromas of spices and chocolate, and beautifully expressed fruit. Rich and dense. Drink this great Saint-Estephe between 2012 and 2040. 2005 will be remembered as a year with very low rainfall and without excessively high temperatures. The harvests took place in magnificent weather. The grapes were healthy and thoroughly ripe, and the promise of the vineyard was fulfilled in the vats.
