Description

95   James Suckling
“A dense, refined wine, with blueberries, blackberries and spices. Full body with integrated tannins and a polished texture. Love the mouthfeel to this. Extremely well done for the vintage, considering the hail in St Estephe.” (2/2014)

94   Wine Enthusiast
“Powerful, very rich and very concentrated, this epitomizes the opulent style of Cos d’Estournel. A sense of extraction is overwhelmed by the huge, ripe fruit. It shows velvet texture at first, but then the tannins come on strongly, leaving a wine that will age over many years. Drink from 2022.” (5/2014)

91   Robert Parker for Wine Advocate
“The 2011 Cos d’Estournel exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and sweet, toasty, oaky notes intermixed with floral and forest floor characteristics. The complex aromatics suggest this is a top success in 2011. In the mouth, the wine is slightly more compact than one would find in a great vintage, such as 2009 and 2010, but it has impressive richness for the vintage as well as light to moderate tannin and admirable purity. It will benefit from 2-5 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15-20 years. Only 30% of the production was utilized for Cos D’Estournel, a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.” (4/2014)

90   Wine Spectator
“Offers ample, almost flashy fruit, with layers of fig, boysenberry and blackberry pâte de fruit rushing forth, lined with anise and toasted spice details. Stays flattering through the finish and will win some fans, but lacks the grip and density for the long haul. Drink now through 2021.” (3/2014)
