'Captures all the best this vintage had to offer' (Vinous)

Dit prachtige château in het zuidelijke deel van Saint-Estèphe is sinds 2000 eigendom van Michel Reybier. De wijngaarden worden slechts door het Jalle du Breuil stroompje gescheiden van Château Lafite Rothschild in het noorden van de AOC Pauillac.

Bodemstudies die Reybier liet uitvoeren door terroirspecialist Pierre Becheler leidden ertoe dat het team van Cos d’Estournel het wijngaardbeheer steeds meer op afzonderlijke percelen is gaan afstemmen. Ook ontstond het inzicht dat het aandeel cabernet sauvignon omhoog moest. In 2009 nam Reybier een naar verluidt € 40 miljoen (!) kostende, ultramoderne cuverie in gebruik.

Ook Cos d’Estournel maakte in 2022 een geweldige chef d’oeuvre. De wijn ontvangt indrukwekkend veel lof van de critici. Zij zijn dermate uitgesproken enthousiast, dat we daar dunkt ons niks aan hoeven toe te voegen.

De wijn wordt beloond met de perfecte score van 100/100 door Bordeaux specialist Jean-Marc Quarin! En zowel Jeb Dunnuck als Jeff Leve geven de voor hun hoogste score van (98-100)/100: hoger is er niet, dit is volgens hen het beste van de vintage en in potentie komt dit straks op fles zomaar op 100/100 uit.

We hebben even gedacht dat we deze veelgevraagde topper enkel bij inschrijving zouden kunnen aanbieden. Echter, door onze goede contacten in Bordeaux slaagden we erin om uiteindelijk net wat meer flessen te bemachtigen. U kunt derhalve de aantallen die u voor uzelf wenst veilig te stellen direct online in de voorverkoop bestellen. Wel moeten we helaas een limiet van max. 12 flessen per klant hanteren. En: wie het eerst komt, die het eerst maalt.

One of the finest wines to ever pass my lips, the 2022 Château Cos D'Estournel is a monument in the making. Based on 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, and 1% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this saturated ruby/purple-hued Saint-Estèphe offers a full-bodied, massive, opulent style as well as perfumed red, blue, and black fruits, ample spice, chocolate, graphite, and lead pencil-like aromatics, a stacked mid-palate, flawless balance, and a monster of a finish. An improved version of the 2009 (if that's possible), this is a legendary wine in the making. Hats off to Michel Reybier and technical director Dominique Arangoïts.

Opaque in color, the wine pops from the glass with black fruits, cloves, cinnamon, blackberries, blueberries, purple flowers, almonds, and smoke. The wine coats, bathes, and covers your palate with seemingly endless layers of opulent, black fruits. The cashmere tannins create the impression of velvet as the wine lingers for 60 seconds or more with its waves of black, blue. and red fruits, dark cocoa, licorice, and Asian spice. There is a seamlessness to the finish, as well as lift, and purity. This is a very hedonistic, yet elegant wine. 2022 clearly competes with the best of vintages of Cos ever produced. The wine was made from blending 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. 14.04% ABV, 3.79 pH. The yields were 33 hectoliters per hectare. The harvest took place September 7 to September 23. The Grand Vin was produced from 66% of the harvest. The wine is going to approachable early in its life, yet it has the ability to age for decades.

Unique structure to this wine and very Cos with all the spices and dark fruits. Tobacco and cedar. It's starts off full-bodied and flavorful, but continues to unfold in an energetic and weightless way. Savory and primary. Al dente grapes here. Exciting and thought-provoking.

Jamais ce cru n'a obtenu une telle appréciation jusqu'alors. Couleur noire. Nez intense, fin, fruité, pur, épicé et complexe. Envoûtant dès l'entrée en bouche, envoûtant au milieu, accompagné de mille saveurs sophistiquées complexes et éclatantes, ce vin pourtant très plein fond au palais. Puis viennent les fruits frais, les fruits noirs, les fleurs, la puissance, une très grande longueur et une onctuosité savoureuse irrésistible. Ah le merlot à Cos, c'est quelque chose !

The 2022 Cos d'Estournel, composed of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, is deep garnet-purple in color. It needs quite a lot of shaking and swirling to unlock fragrant notes of warm cassis, redcurrant jelly, and black raspberries, leading to hints of rose oil, Indian spices, cedar chest, and sandalwood, plus a touch of crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is very classic, with a solid backbone of firm, ripe tannins and impressive tension to support the taut, muscular black and red fruit layers, finishing very long and with remarkable purity. pH 3.79, TPI 90.

Deep dark ruby in colour with an inky, opaque core, purple reflections, and subtle brightening on the rim. An inviting bouquet on the nose, with intense aromas of black berry fruit, liquorice, dark cherry, candied orange zest and some clove. The tightly woven palate is powerful, minerally, and very long, underpinned by firm, ripe tannins and notes of nougat and crystallised violets. Has the potential for further ageing, with decades ahead of it.

Fresh and vibrant blackcurrant aromas with milk chocolate, vanilla and floral scents - so aromatic and expressive. Juicy and alive, bright and vibrant on the palate with soft herbal scents surrounding the fruit. The flavours - blackcurrant, black cherry, damson and orange rind - settle vertically but the firm and textured tannins give the focus, structure and tension. It has liquorice and flint edges all the way giving a savoury touch and clear minerality as well as dark chocolate and clove spice. Refined and serious but also there’s such a delicious juicy undercurrent giving life and energy. Confident winemaking on show, this is a real success in delivering a complete and powerful wine with depth but no heaviness. Totally delicious and moreish. A wine you're going to finish! Potential upscore in bottle. Two-third grand vin production. 2.94 total acidity. 3.79pH. 90 IPT. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend.

The 2022 Cos d'Estournel unwinds in the glass with aromas of sweet berries, plum liqueur and rich spices, followed by a full-bodied, broad-shouldered and muscular palate that's rich and structured, with a ripe core of fruit and chewy tannins. Harvest dates were relatively early this year, and maturation is occurring in only 50% new oak; yet the 2022's chunky, glass-staining style makes it Ducru Beaucaillou's only rival for the title of most extracted second growth of the Médoc.

Deep purple-black hue. Firm, structured with huge reserve. Layers of dark fruit and a massive tannic frame. Almost like it’s been hewn from stone. Tannins polished, though, providing enormous length. Not for the faint-hearted. Will need patience.

The 2022 Cos d’Estournel is stunning. Rich and statuesque in bearing, the 2022 captures all the best this vintage had to offer. A wine of precision and power, the 2022 balances the intensity of the year but without veering into the realm of the exotic, as was the case in vintages such as 2005 and 2009. It marries ripeness and classical rigor in a style that is quite appealing. I imagine the 2022 will need a good 15-20 years to be at its finest.

Inky colour with violet edging, this is full of intense damson, incense, baked plum and black chocolate. A huge quantity of tannins but the texture is velvety, giving a creamy edge to the fruits, with contrast and freshness provided by orange zest and slate. Some of the old Merlot vines on gravel were picked early to tame them but generally the vineyard took the vintage in its stride, and almost 75% of production is in the 1st wine. Harvest September 7 to 23, 33hl/h yield, 90IPT, 50% new oak. Potential upscore in bottle.
