Lobenberg über:Chateau Cos d’Estournel 2eme Cru 2008

95–97
/100

Lobenberg: 85% CS, 13% Merlot, 2%CF. Schwarz. Immens in der Tiefe der Nase, Brombeere, Heidelbeere, Teer, Erde, geflämmtes Holz, auch konzentrierte rote und schwarze Johannisbeere und süßes Crème de Cassis. Ein Wanderer zwischen der Moderne Argentiniens und Kaliforniens und good old Europe. Auch im Mund überaus dicht, allen Platz einnehmend mit der extrem zentrierten Frucht, butterweiche Tanninmassen stabilisieren die reichliche Säure perfekt, satte Brombeere und Kokos, Lorbeer, süße Maulbeere, sauber definierte Ränder, nichts flattert. Mit Las Cases, vielleicht sogar vor Las Cases, der Supersecond mit 1er Cru Niveau, ganz groß. 95-97/100

-- Parker: The 2008 Cos d'Estournel possesses an atypically high (85%) amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, with 13% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. The first vintage vinified in the new facility, an unusually high percentage of the crop (78%) was included in the grand vin. The bad news is that yields were a minuscule 25 hectoliters per hectare. This wine achieved 13.8% natural alcohol, and the number of days between the flowering and harvest was 160, compared to the normal 100-110 (one of the keys to understanding the exceptionally high quality that characterizes the 2008 Bordeaux). There were no serious heat waves during the growing season, which meant that the maturation process was slow, long, and ideal. Combine that with the very low yields, and the superb weather from mid-September to late-October, and the often splendid results are much easier to comprehend. The inky/purple-hued 2008 Cos is still very young, and probably will improve even further as the wine came out of malolactic fermentation very late. It reveals exceptionally precise, fresh aromas of black fruits, crushed rocks, licorice, flowers, and subtle smoke. Dense and high in tannin, the extraordinary richness of polyphenols has given the wine power, substance, and depth, but the sweetness of the tannin and the seemingly low acidity, even though the wine tastes remarkably fresh and the pH is only 3.57 (compared to pH's close to 4 when the fruit is this ripe), has given the wine a precision and elegance that is remarkable. And don't forget, this is probably the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon ever used in a Cos d'Estournel blend. This wine should gain weight, richness, and a few Parker points by the time it is bottled. It is even denser and richer than the 1996, with an index of polyphenols at 80, which is not unusual for many of the top wines of the vintage, but is extremely high, and more along the lines of what one would find in the top wines of 2005. It should evolve for 30-35 years. This property has undergone a complete make-over, building a state-of-the-art, spaceship-looking new winemaking facility, and giving brilliant winemaker Jean-Guillaume Prats carte blanche authority from proprietor Michel Reybier. The team continues to fine tune and reflect on every possible detail in both the vineyard and the winery in order to achieve even greater success. 94-96+/100 -- NM: This is a great wine from Jean-Guillaume Prats and tasted alongside the gestating 2009 at the chateau, guess which one I preferred? The 2008 has a wonderful, life-affirming bouquet: very pure and refined, great precision with blackberry, bilberry, briary, a touch of wild hedgerow and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced with slightly brittle tannin on the entry, the Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) firmly in the driving seat. Great clarity and focus towards the almost Pauillac like finish soaked in mineralite, this wine is brilliantly realized. Drink 2015-2030+ Tasted October 2010. 96/100 -- WW: 78% der Lese fand Zugang zum Grand Vin. Tiefes, dichtes Granat mit lila und violetten Reflexen. Komplexes Bouquet, dezent laktisch, Kandisnoten, Vanillestängel, Brombeergelee, Black Currant und dunkle Edelhölzer, zarte Rauchnoten im Untergrund. Im Gaumen mit viel Schmelz, dann mit sattem, konzentriert blaubeerigem Extrakt aufwartend, im Finale Cassis, Brombeeren und ein Hauch von dominikanischem Tabak, jklingt mit feinem, elegantem Druck aus. Zeigt gewisse Parallelen zum 1988 - wie so manche Medocs. 19/20 -- WS: Sweet tobacco, tar, blueberry and coffee aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Bright and fruity, with a lovely finish. A crisp, precise and focused wine, with a lively finish. 85 percent Cabernet, slightly more than usual. 91-94/100 -- Jancis Robinson: 78% went into this thanks to small vats in new cellar. High IPT. Extremely deep purplish crimson. It even feels heavy in the hand... Dense terroir expression dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. Then some spice and much less brutal than some earlier vintages. Extremely vital and lively. Not as concentrated as Latour but (slightly) more energetic than Lafite. Great balance and very fine tannins. Some old hands will object that this is a little 'lighter' than, say, 2005 - but I think it's very well judged. Not a trace of unripeness of fruit or tannin. And some real personality jumps out. Should have an unusually long drinking window. Very ,very clean. Fine and neat. Livelier than many other vintages. 13.8% 18/20

-- Galloni: The 2008 Cos d’Estournel had one of the most backward, reticent bouquets that I encountered during my tasting. This is so sultry and broody, begrudgingly offering some lovely brambly red fruit mixed with pencil box. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, plenty of black fruit laced with allspice, black pepper and sage, leading to a dense and concentrated finish that should see this age for 20 or 30 years. It does not really serve as a forerunner to the blockbuster 2009 because this is cut from a completely different cloth. (Tasted at BI Wine & Spirit’s annual 10-Year On tasting.) 94/100
