And very reasonably priced at less than $150 a bottle. The charcuterie that hits you as soon as you open this Bordeaux is overwhelming: It's smoky, spicy and sexy. Minutes later you realize the complexity on offer, catching just a scent of the dark fruits hidden beneath, and before those, long and wonderful hints of balsamic vinegar. On the palate this shows elegance and finesse thanks to fabulous balance, extremely integrated tannins and a long and glorious finish. This is so satisfying and wonderful now, but the slightly bitter aftertaste on the rear palate suggests this could do with at least another 10 years before opening.

The nose has certainly closed down since I last tasted it at en primeur, less floral and more tertiary with a surly broody quality. Cedar and a hint of dark chocolate coming through with aeration, roasted herbs. Very well defined. The full-bodied palate is very tannic structure with a solidity that suggests extended cellaring is mandatory. This Cos d’Estournel is powerful and masculine, yet with wonderful freshness and vitality and a slight savoury tang evolving with further aeration on the persistent finish. Drink 2018-2035+

A grand vintage of Cos, shepherded by Jean-Guillaume Prats in the direction of Lafite's elegance, just across the border in Pauillac. The wine has an aristocratic beauty, its succulent ripe fruit ripened to powerful tension on the uplift of limestone that rises under the vines. The oak combines with the fruitiness of the wine to give the impression of a long pull on a fine cigar. With several days of air, the surface polish yields and the wine reveals its ironbound tannins, a structure that will set the course for two decades of development before it approaches peak drinking.

Very generous, with lovely mouthfeel. The creamy fruit drapes over warm, pebbly tannins, allowing the dark plum and currant fruit to meld with the bay and roasted alder notes.

The creamy fruit drapes over warm, pebbly tannins, allowing the dark plum and currant fruit to meld with the bay and roasted alder notes. The finish has a grip of earth and stretches out nicely. On point right now.—Non-blind Cos-d'Estournel vertical (December 2015). Drink now through 2025. 15,000 cases made. –JM

A beautiful example of the vintage proprietor Michel Reybier and his top-notch winemaker Jean-Guillaume Prats have fashioned an exceptional wine displaying a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of boysenberries black currants cherries pain grille roasted herbs and licorice. Medium-bodied with impressive density for the vintage sweet tannin and outstanding richness and length it should be at its finest between 2009 and 2020+. Also tasted: 2004 Les Pagodes de Cos (87)

Round suave and ripe with lovely depth of flavor and a pliant full texture for the year. This doesn't have quite the thrust of the 2006 but it's lively and fresh and finishes ripely tannic and long.

Brick red at the core fading at the rim. On the nose, lavish black fruit is wonderfully offset by a savory edge of pitted olives, herbs and spice.

On the nose, lavish black fruit is wonderfully offset by a savory edge of pitted olives, herbs and spice. Elegant and rather approachable in contrast to the 2005 Cos tasted at the same time, the palate features loads of dark berries and a pronounced streak of minerality. The wine also takes on notes of leather and tobacco, lending it a decidedly masculine profile to such a beautiful Bordeaux. This is beginning to find its stride and should please Bordeaux connoisseurs over the next decade plus.
