Cos d'Estournel 2005 unveils an exceptional harmony, a dazzling nature able to generate great emotions. It is a wine of impressive aromatic complexity, where aromatic and velvety powers combine with a great length. It offers a remarkable potential for ageing, for at least 15 years. The wines of the estate will develop complex aromas that will vary according to the characteristics of each vintage and evolve with time. Proper service will allow these qualities to express themselves completely. The youngest vintages-those produced after 2000-should be decanted at least an hour and a half before tasting. Aeration will help bring the spirit and passion of each wine into focus, so its potential can be fully revealed. We recommend serving wines between 17°C and 18°C. As they continue to warm up in the glass, they will release their full palette of aromas and reveal their most subtle, delicate nuances.

Saint-Estèphe has a reputation for tannins, and this 2005 Cos lives up to that. But it does much more, because the tannins add richness along with intensely ripe black fruits, dark plums and figs. The dense tannins are finely balanced with fresh acidity, and a long-lasting aftertaste. Impressive.

Still tight despite a gorgeous wave of rich melted licorice, fig bread, warm plum compote and steeped blackberry flavors. Lovely alder, black tea and balsam wood details give this added range and a sense of detail through the finish before a wall of graphite-edged grip shows up. We're still in wait mode here.-Blind '01/'03/'05 Bordeaux retrospective (December 2017). Best from 2020 through 2040.
