One Very Rare 750ml Bottle of the Excellent 1966 Vintage of Château Cos d'Estournel. Château Cos d'Estournel Produces one of the Best Wines in the Medoc and is Definitely the Best in the Saint-Estèphe appellation; it is also Comparable to the Famous First Growth Wines of Bordeaux. Its Wines are Powerful and Very Well-Made. This Excellent 1966 Vintage of Château Cos d`Estournel has been rated a Very High 23 Points by Neal Martin , of the wine-journal.com Website. He rates on a 25 point Scale , with 23-24 being Classified as ' Brilliant . Truly a Memorable Experience ' . Here is his Review, " 23 out of 25 ......... Lucid , Brick/Ruby colour. Stunning Ripe rounded Nose: Roasted Herbs, Gamey. Lovely Plump palate akin to the 1982. Superb Balance - this Caresses the Palate with so much Ripeness! Even better than the Firsts Growths. Classic Cos d'Estournel - An Absolute Gem. Will still drink over 10-20  + years. " - The Wine-Journal.com Website.  Château Cos d`Estournel is named after its 19th century owner, Louis-Gaspard d`Estournel -   and it was He who built the Bizarre Oriental Edifice that is a Landmark destination for any tourist in the Médoc. Today Cos is without Doubt the Leading Estate in St-Estéphe. It is located in the south of the Appellation on the border with Pauillac and its Vineyards are Superbly sited on a south-facing Gravel ridge with a High Clay content, just north of Lafite. Cos is normally a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc - do not be fooled by the Relatively High Merlot Content, as these are Full-Bodied, Dark, Brooding Tannic Wines when Young which Develop a Complexity and Intensity that can Rival many Top Growths from Pauillac. In 1998 the Prats family sold Cos d'Estournel to The Tailan Group but Jean-Guillaume Prats remains in charge. It is Classified as a 2ème cru classé. The 1966 Vintage was an Excellent one for all of Bordeaux, and Especially for Chateau Cos d'Estournel, in particular. This Bottle is in Mint Condition and is in Commercial Storage. Thanks for looking.
