    April 18, 2020 - Did not label as flawed, but wine may have had some TCA. Seemed to improve with time and was still drinkable on initial opening. Fruit was subdued and earthy undertones led the nose. medium tannins still carry the palette. Re tasted a day later and wine seemed to have improved slightly. Still not sure if the bottle was flawed - will need to try anther to be sure

    November 12, 2018 - Declined even further than previous taster suggested. Hardly giving anything.

    January 21, 2017 - it is a little disappointment within the group after tasting the 1976 Cos with the others: the wine is declining quickly and does not give too much pleasure at the moment. Considering the "power" of Cos this is hard to believe, but it is true: drink your 1976 Cos now, because it can only go down further along the road. As a tip: it is benchmarked with 1976 Ausone which is still such a pleasant wine at the tasting.

    October 9, 2016 - Not as good as the last one. Cork fell apart into the wine, so I filtered it. Musty and a bit dull, but came around with some air. Just OK, but still fun.

    September 29, 2016 - garnet color , nose of asian spices , delicate. On the palate still performing , round and balanced , medium long finish. 40 years but you can't believe, only Bordeaux can live so long
