*2017 Cos D’Estournel St Estephe
$161.99btl/$971.94 per case of six OWC
(Wine Advocate 97-100)
The final blend of the 2017 Cos d’Estournel is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Very deep purple-black in color, it offers up intense scents of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and black cherries with touches of incense, spice cake, star anise and plum preserves plus a perfumed hint of potpourri. The palate is medium-bodied with very firm yet wonderfully ripe, “sweet”, fine-grained tannins at just 13% alcohol-something of a miracle in our modern times. The palate sports fantastic freshness and tons of energy emitted from the intensely perfumed black fruit layers, finishing on an epically long-lingering mineral note. Truly profound.
*2017 Pagodes de Cos St Estephe
2nd wine of Cos D’Estournel
$45.00btl/$270.00 per case of six OWC
This is a succulent wine, ripe with rich fruit. It is soft, but with a firm core that keeps the structure together. It has the fine juiciness that is typical of this vintage-the tannins take a supporting role to the powerful fruit. This well rounded wine will be ready from 2022.
*2017 Pichon Baron Pauillac
$143.99btl/$863.94 per case of six OWC
(Wine Advocate 95-97)
The grand vin represents 50% of production this year. A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot, the 2017 Pichon-Longueville Baron is deep garnet-purple in color and simply sings of vibrant blackcurrants, black cherries and rose hip notes with nuances of potpourri, incense, licorice and pencil shavings plus touches of cigar box and fertile loam. Medium-bodied, super intense and possessing stunning poise, it has very firm, fine-grained tannins and a beautifully silken texture, with bags of freshness and a very long, perfumed finish. (LPB)
