Lot #1. Cos d'Estournel 1982

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 96 NM.
"Tasted at the Cos d’Estournel dinner at St. John. Just how lovely is this Cos, which must be halfway along its plateau of maturity. The nose is just divine with dark cherries, iodine, a touch of hot bricks, scorched earth, and roasted chestnuts on a freezing December evening. So much character, so natural. The palate is medium-bodied with exquisite balance, still quite youthful and utterly harmonious. Smoky and meaty towards the finish that you yearn to go on as long as possible. This is a more rustic version of the Pichon-Lalande ’82, but in its own way, just as desirable." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Nov 2009
Provenance: The Beverly Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $750
