Best Cos Ever!
First Growth Standard!
I kid you not! The 1990 was a total exception for Cos d’Estournel. I even once hosted a 5 decades of vertical Cos, no vintage can beat the 1990. I drank it many times and I have to stress provenance is key here.
It had this creamy latte bouquet coupled with smokes and wet tobacco.
Palate was exceptional, absolutely first growth standard, young, elegant, creamy, chocolate, and very rich. Served double blind, my guess was a Latour 89! So you can figure where it stands!
A bottle of Latour 89 would cost $1050!
Cos d’Estournel 1990
Only at $400 each! Last 8 bottles!
What’s more! 6 other wine merchants sell the same bottle and Fine Wines price is the lowest!
