    Château Cos d'Estournel 1982
    Saint-Estéphe, 2ème cru classé
    Not in original wooden case. Corroded capsules, slightly damaged. Bin-soiled labels, damp-affected. Levels into neck
    Tasting note: A spectacular performance for this wine, Cos d'Estournel's 1982 exhibits a dark ruby/purple colour with light pink at the rim. Sweet aromas of jammy black fruits intermixed with roasted espresso and vanillin jump from the glass of this young, concentrated, full-bodied, succulent effort. An opulent texture, low acidity, and splendidly pure, concentrated, blackberry and cassis fruit suggest this 1982 can be drunk now, or cellared for another 15-20 years. An awesome wine!
