1978 Chateau Cos D Estournes

First was the 1978, it was nice.  This was only the 3rd wine I have had that was made pre 1980.  It held together nicely.  The color was a bit coppery and aromas of earthy soil filled my nose.  First drink was interesting, it was quite layered which I didn’t expect.  After a touch of time it showed some good length combined with the rustic tannic nature you would expect from a nice bordeaux.  This was a treat just to have a wine of this caliber from this vintage.

1978!
