    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wines produced show a lovely color, a rich, complex nose and a structure typical of Saint-Estèphe. Château Cos-Labory is a member of the Académie du Vin de Bordeaux, of the Commanderie du Bontemps du Médoc et des Graves, and also of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bernard Audoy usually makes a gracious, middleweight wine at his property across from Cos d'Estournel, at the southern border of St-Estèphe. This 2005 is more powerful, with jasmine and bergamot scents buzzing over serious tannins. The fruit is completely hidden, as black as the tannins that coat the mouth in mineral flavors, neither ripping nor softened up. Sleek and expansive, this is set to age for ten years or more.

    Saturated medium ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry, cassis, kirsch, menthol, black olive and shoe polish; a bit inexpressive today. Then broad, ripe and sweet, but with a firm spine of acids and tannins giving shape and thrust to this very young wine. Finishes with broad, serious tannins and noteworthy power and persistence. A very good showing. Range: 88-90
