Cos d'Estournel

The 2010 vintage is the result of an exceptional combination of dry weather - 2010 was the driest year of the decade - and of rather cool temperatures - with the coldest May for five years. These weather conditions produced a late, extended flowering period. The flowering, which was disrupted in some instances, resulted in significant flower abortion of the Merlot. One of the consegauences of this was relatively low yields. Weather conditions in the first half of July (summer temperatures but not a heat wave), allowed the veraison, which had been slowed down, to quickly be completed. The very low rainfall this year (fairly close to that of 2005) resulted in small berries and very well-ripened tannins.
