Bordeaux 2011: avaliação dos vinhos de Saint-Estèphe (Decanter)

Château Cos d'Estournel

Para uma safra considerada "mediana" em Bordeaux, as primeiras avaliações da Decanter demonstram que a maioria dos vinhos está ótima. Se o radical corte de preços anunciado se confirmar, pode voltar a valer a pena adquirir estas preciosidades vínicas do Médoc.

Conheça a seguir as avaliações dos vinhos de Saint-Estèphe:

Chateau Calon-Segur, Grand Cru Classe, Saint-Estephe 2011
