I drank a profound magnum of 1928 the chateau with Monsieur Prats in March 1988.

This has always been considered one of the great 1928s and when I first tasted it a number of years ago it was nearly perfect. This particular bottle displayed the tough tannin that is a characteristic of the vintage. No doubt the high tannin and rich concentration are the reasons why so many 1928s are in superb condition at 65 years of age. The color was a dusty, dark rubygarnet, and the bouquet offered aromas of sweet red and black fruits, damp earth, oak, and an interesting pine tree-like scent. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with excellent depth of fruit, and freshness, this wine will last for 10-15 more years. However, I think it was a richer, more complete wine several years ago.

Cos d\'Estournel

The Chateau Cos d'Estournel is a vineyard of 67 hectares, located in Saint-Estephe in the Gironde. Cos d'Estournel is an AOC in the Medoc which is part of the Saint-Estephe appellation and classed a Second Growth Grand Cru in the classification of 1855. Cos Gascon means hill of stones. Cos d'Estournel is situated on a mound of clay mixed with limestone. The excess of stone, specific to Cos, therefore forces the vines to plunge deeper to draw its nees from the soil. Lack of water makes great wines and the wines of Cos benefit very well. The vines are 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and a small percentage of Cabernet Franc. The vineyards spread over thirty plots that average 35 years old. They are densely planted at 9000 vines / ha. Only vines more than twenty years old will be used for the top wine. Harvesting is done manually. The assembly of Cos varies annually. Full maturity of Cos wines is only achieved after 10-30 years, with exceptional longevity for the best years. A neighbor of Château Lafite Rothschild, Cos is a great wine in the classic tradition of the most prestigious Bordeaux of the Medoc. The winery produces 200 000-380 000 bottles per year... Cos produces a second wine called Les Pagodes de Cos, from vines aged less than twenty years. Best vintages are 20032000, 1996, 19951994, 1990, 1986, 1985, 1982, 1961, 1959, 1953.
