Wine tasting note: 1986 Cos d'Estournel Bordeaux

1986 Cos d'Estournel Bordeaux

9th Feb 1998 GBP78 Bordeaux Table Red

A treat to make up for all those tannic wines!
Deep purple/red fading to tawny/mahogany rim.
Ripe, mature claret nose with plenty of alcohol evident, meat, cassis, chocolate, vanilla and toasty oak.
Medium to full bodied, with a silky, elegant mouth-filling texture. Long, long finish.
A very classy wine that is drinking well now but will keep going for another few more years.
