Vinous, 100 points: (97-100) A regal, soaring Saint-Estèphe, the 2018 Cos d'Estournel is also clearly one of the wines of the vintage. On the palate, the 2018 is dark and sumptuous, with striking aromatic presence and silky tannins that wrap...
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.
jebdunnuck.com, 95 points: (93-95) Another second wine from this brilliant vintage that tastes more like a grand vin, the 2018 Le Marquis de Calon Segur offers a full-bodied, ripe, incredibly sexy profile that carries terrific amounts of currants...
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.
Decanter, 95 points: My overall favourite, as it displays such personality, gourmandise and freshness. Combines elegance, smoothness, lift on the finish, which is floral, without falling into a modern ‘glossy’ trap. Worth the higher price.
jamessuckling.com, 98 points: This is very linear and direct on the palate, showing great potential and length. Full body with mango and dried-lemon character and a long, flavorful finish. Shows intent and seriousness. Tight and structured. Better...
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.
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...
