jamessuckling.com, 94 points: A red with very deep and intense fruit character, yet rich tannins to back it all up. Full-bodied, layered and powerful. The second wine of Cos d’Estournel is serious again in 2016. Try from 2025.
Wine Enthusiast, 95 points: This
is a firm wine although with superb fruit. It
is structured and dense, dark with tarry tannins as
well as juicy fruitiness. It is a powerful wine that
certainly has the freshness of the year while also
jamessuckling.com, 96 points: This is real powerful and sexy with a voluptuous style of ripe fruit, mushrooms and wet earth. Leafy. Full and seductive. Better after 2021 but already fantastic.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 99 points: Tasted at the Montrose vertical in London, the 2010 Montrose was the youngest vintage by some 115 years, but it is undeniably one of the best. It is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1%...
Wine Spectator, 94 points: Really vibrant with lovely notes of plum violet and cherry preserves laced with chalky cut that stretches out the finish. Very very solid. -J.M.
jamessuckling.com, 95 points: A very serious St.-Estèphe with excellent concentration, firm tannins and a dark soul. I love the earth, walnut, bark and smoke aromas that pour out of this. Very long, dramatic, dry finish. Better from 2021.
Wine Enthusiast, 94 points: Cellar Selection. As so often with Montrose, this is a powerful, concentrated and very structured wine. Dense tannins are paired with rich black fruits, although at this stage the wine also has a sense of austerity...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 points: (WA91-93 points) The 2016 Chateau Laffitte Carcasset offers attractive cedar infused black fruit on the nose, hints of red plum following just behind, quite detailed with abundant fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with...
Vinous, 100 points: The 2016 Cos d’Estournel was a bona fide showstopper out of barrel, the best that I had encountered in over 20 years of visiting the estate during en primeur, so my expectations were piled high when I returned to find out...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96 points: The 2009 Calon-Ségur is deep garnet in color and opens with a beautiful fragrance of redcurrant preserves, cassis, black cherry compote and red roses plus nuances of cigar box and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied and...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 100 points: (WA 97-100 points) The final blend of the 2017 Cos d'Estournel is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Very deep purple-black in color, it offers up intense scents of crushed...
jamessuckling.com, 97 points: Incredible aromas of currants, blackberries, slate and flowers. Full-bodied yet so tight and beautiful with superb polish and brightness. The length is fantastic. Truly superb. Drink in 2021.
