Cos d'Estournel 1975 bin soiled

Cos d’Estournel is often called a ‘super second’ referring to its classification as a second growth wine of Bordeaux and its ability to consistently show a similar quality to many of the first growths.

This is Robert Parker’s note: “This is not a pretty wine. The amber-tinged color is followed by earthy, vegetal, spicy scents, and little fruit. Harsh, austere, and frightfully tannic, this hollow wine will undoubtedly keep for 20-25 years, but it will never provide any pleasure. Drink it up.” 76 (!) points

Pretty scathing. But we couldn’t disagree more.
Instead we are impressed with the lingering sweet dark fruit here, softness of the palate and surprising richness and intensity. It really is a lovely wine, perhaps Parker should taste it again?

Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon dominant
