Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2003
Absolutely gorgeous on the nose with currants blackberries and freshly cut flowers. Full-bodied with ultrafine tannins and a solid core of fruit. This goes on and on on the palate.

This goes on and on on the palate. The essence of class and refinement. Relatively good value considering the superb quality. No better Cos since 1989. Best after 2010. 20830 cases made. -JS

Shows age now with aromas of tobacco, plums and smoked meat. Licorice too. Full-bodied, round and soft with plenty of attractive tertiary character. Needs drinking.

Showing some lightening at the edges as well as some amber this is the least impressive of the greatest vintages for Cos d'Estournel between 2000 and 2009. It is an outstanding wine but it is closer to maturity and lacking the concentration texture and overall compelling aromatics of more recent vintages. The wine displays roasted herbs intermixed with licorice incense black cherry and black currant fruit. Medium-bodied rather than full elegant with some spicy tannins and a nice sweet finish compared to the other top classified growths this wine is on a much faster evolutionary track and can be drunk now and over the next 15 or more years.

Cassis minerals cedar and a floral note on the nose along with an herbal currant leaf component. Juicy and tight; hints at the power of the vintage but misses out on the sweetness and pliancy of the best examples. Offers a reasonably seamless texture but the firmly tannic finish seems a bit herbaceous following the 2001. 90 points
