Cos d’Estournel St Estephe 1988
9.5 stars
1 Nov 2019

For 1988 Bordeaux, there isn’t too many good wines. In my lifetime tasting, I could only recall Lafite, Latuor and Margaux as the top performing 1988 wines. Tonight I added Cos d’Estournel 88 as another top performing 88 Bordeaux. I can assure you the quality is far superb compared to Mouton Rothschild. Perhaps Cos was just a stone throw away from Lafite Rothschild, and that perhaps explained the superb quality. Not a very typical Cos to boot with, as there isn’t the typical characteristics of thick tea leaves. Instead the content was primarily dominated by red fruits, and not just typical red fruits, it was jammed packed, and with amazing concentration! Highly recommended for Bordeaux 1988 lovers!
