Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2009
Blackberry black licorice and violet aromas follow through to a full body with soft silky tannins and a pretty balanced finish. Refined and flavorful. Best after 2014. â_"JS

Expressive aromas of dark raspberry smoked meat black olive iron smoke and tobacco. Lush broad and sweet with a deep smoky meaty sweetness and outstanding palate coverage. For all its breadth and silkiness there's no shortage of energy and definition. Finishes impressively long with chewy sweet tannins that dust the front teeth.

This is very meaty and spicy now with hints of leafs and wet earth. Full body, chewy tannins and a medium finish. Ready for drinking. But has life ahead of it.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château Cos d'Estournel has a far superior bouquet to the Montrose, much more fruit intensity with ferrous red berry fruit, hints of undergrowth and Indian spice (most appropriate!). The palate is medium-bodied with supple Merlot-driven savory red fruit, a little grainy in texture with moderate depth, leading to a spicy finish that seems quite forward for a Cos d'Estournel at this juncture. There is no harm in drinking this now, though I wager that it will offer another ten years of pleasure. Just don't expect it to be your favorite Cos d'Estournel in recent years.
