Opened but not decanted about 40 minutes before pouring. Somewhat muted nose. Bright ruby color. Elegant, sophisticated and well structured. This showed its Pedegree but also admitted to being not from a stellar vintage.Not a lot of fruit but still a fine wine.

Tasted at 15 vintage vertical dinner : 2004 Cos d'Estournel had pretty, fragrant nose with floral notes and a linear body with slightly grippy tannins.
