Chateau Cos d’Estournel 2eme Cru

Lobenberg 100

Lobenberg: Extrem dunkelrot mit schwarzen Reflexen. Die Nase ist berauschend, sie erschlägt einen fast. Eine Duftwolke aus Brombeere, etwas Cassis, schwarze Kirsche, aber auch Rauch und Tabak, schwarze Schokolade. Im Mund besticht zu allererst die Feinheit. Nach der Nase hätte man viel mehr Druck erwartet. Im Mund sind die Tannine ungeheuer präsent, aber superpoliert und geschliffen, ganz weich. Harmonie und Finesse über allem. Schöner langer Abgang. Insgesamt ein toller und sehr harmonischer Cos d'Estournel. Ein wirklich raffinierter Wein. Groß! -- RP: While I am not convinced the 2005 Cos d'Estournel will eclipse the compelling 2003 Cos, it is unquestionably another superb classic from proprietor Michel Reybier and his brilliant winemaker, Jean-Guillaume Prats. Made from an unusually high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%) and the balance mostly Merlot with a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc, this superb effort requires plenty of time in the bottle. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as a glorious perfume of licorice, Asian spices, creme de cassis, blackberries, and toasty oak. This full-bodied St.-Estephe is exceptionally powerful, pure, and dense with a layered mid-palate that builds like a skyscraper. While there are massive tannins, they are remarkably velvety and well-integrated in this big, backstrapping effort that should enjoy an unusually long life. Forget it for 8-10 years, and drink it between 2017-2040. 98/100 -- WS: Black in color, with aromas of orange peel, new leather, currant, berry and Christmas pudding. Full-bodied, with layers of velvety tannins and a long, long finish of fruit and spices. The cashmere texture is all there. 2003 plus 2000 equals 2005. 98/ 100 - J.S.

-- IWC: Good ruby-red. Knockout nose combines currant, plum, minerals, licorice and graphite. Wonderfully sweet, rich and deep, but with near-perfect balancing acidity to frame the wine's lush fruit. This superb 2005 has it all. Finishes with noble, sweet tannins and palate-saturating persistence. On my most recent visit, Prats told me he considered 2005 to be superior to the 2003, and that the '05 may be "our best wine ever." 96/100
