98 points
4 hours of testing : Cos 2005, a new aroma de Cos, modern…no muddy smell at all. Hints of some flower underneath..ดอกชงโค.. chocolate gets along with mild espresso and mild bloody of Rightbank Merlot. The smell is not widely opened but good dept and charming.

The structure is full score, perfect ABC, acid, balance, complex. Compact, dense and very big. Full delicate tannin, wonderful tannic as it was made to be drunk at this moment, only the scents needs more aging to show more fantastic in the future.

The aftertaste…oh…no…more powerful than La Mondotte 1997 (testing together). The only one way ticket downs and never come back. Bleeding inside !!! The best Cos I’ve ever tested. If you didn’t stick with the old muddy style, this wine is truly perfect…only 1-2 points is missing from the score in its part of aroma and bouquet…It may gets the 100/100 score in the future when everything is right on track. who’s know ?

Drink now ? I must open 2 hours and say Oh Yeah....!!!

    Anyway, glad I have some of this wine. Think I'll keep for a couple of years before open the first bottle.

    No idea what it is in english, not purpurea though. :)

    Maybe it's like the best Margaux, that have sort of a flower shop scent to them? Just love that!
