Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Cos d’Estournel 2eme Cru 2001


Lobenberg: Dunkle Farbe, schwarze Reflexe, im Stil der letzten Jahre von Cos. Recht dicht, balanciert, ausreichende Tiefe, Schwarzbeeren und Maulbeere, ein Hauch schwarze Oliven, etwas Teer, nicht ganz groß, aber ein sehr guter Wein! 92-93/100


Decanter über: Chateau Cos d’Estournel 2eme Cru

-- Decanter: Gorgeous, a clear step up from the 2000 vintage as it approaches its second decade. This is not quite ready to drink, although a few hours in a decanter could open it up sufficiently. It's full of intense, tight and spirited black fruits, replete with this château’s signature richness of structure, which seems to ooze naturally through the tannins. There's a real sense of energy and zest, with liquorice, slate, spice, cassis and black cherry. The second half of August was hotter in 2001 than 2000 in St-Estèphe, and the grapes were left to reach a long, slow maturity. Harvesting did not begin until 1 October when the nights were getting cooler –this will have helped the wine keep its remarkable freshness. Matured in 80% new oak. 95/100


Parker über: Chateau Cos d’Estournel 2eme Cru

-- Parker: The 2001 Cos d'Estournel is blended of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot—a very high percentage of Merlot in this vintage and a very late harvest, which started on October 1st. Deep garnet in color, the nose is singing with savory notes of smoked meats, tapenade, bay leaves and beef drippings with a core of plum preserves, redcurrant jelly, dried cherries and baked blackcurrants with wafts of peppermint tea and dried roses. Medium-bodied, the palate practically tingles with vibrant dried herbs, red fruit preserves and minty notes, structured with firm, finely grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and minerally.94/100
