    November 10, 2018 - Reviews say this wine is on a fast-track to maturity but I didn't find that. Fruit is vibrant w/ plum, black currant, cassis, anise and spice. Sweet, well integrated tannins, elegant and polished. An hour in the decanter and could have used another 1 -2 hours and capable for 3+ years of more bottle age. Fantastic

    October 27, 2018 - This was served blind against 2000 Leoville Barton and 2000 Gauby Muntada. It beat a perhaps dumb-phased Leoville hands down, but was edged out of first place by the sheer hedonism of the richly-fruited Muntada.

    The Cos took some grappling with - clearly a huge and complex wine, meaty and brooding with no real fruit yet. However, I finished the bottle nine days later and it was singing beautifully. A very fine wine indeed. I'll wait at least another three years before opening one of my remaining two bottles in the hope that its full potential will have emerged by then.

    September 30, 2018 - great mature wine. Not as good as the Ducru of same year, but very enjoyable.

    September 29, 2018 - Possibly some bottle variation but this was not as good as two years ago. The nose is terrific, classic Bordeaux. But on the palate it is just a tech thin really, nice ripe fruit and a great long finish but not quite as smooth, complex and intense as one would hope. I'd drink it everyday if I could, but for the money I'd chose a different vintage of this wine or a different wine of the vintage.

Rockss and Fruit

  • By Lyle Fass
    10/4/2004 (link)

    (Cos d'Estournel) Cocoa, raspberry liquor and complex mineral tones on the nose. Lush and glyceril with dense, silky primary fruit. Black fruits with a red streak. Pretty elegant and does a little mambo on the palate. Super concentrated but done in a kind of "spoofilated" new-world style. Very different and less traditional than the '95 Cos the other week. I still liked it
