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.

A racy, fresh style, with the lighter profile of the vintage pulling in red currant and bitter cherry flavors, while the telltale thread of charcoal and bay lingers as well. The tannins are ever so slightly grainy, but the fruit has subtle persistence in the end.—Non-blind Cos-d'Estournel vertical (December 2015). Drink now through 2026. 15,833 cases made. –JM

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.

The Cos d’Estournel ’06 has a very opulent, gregarious nose: high-toned, slightly volatile black fruit with a hint of eau-de-vie. The palate is full-bodied with firm, bold tannins, rich and decadent but certainly disjointed at the moment. There is something Tuscan/Napa Valley reminiscent in this Saint Estephe that is so daringly spicy and exotic towards the glossy finish. Like your best friend that cannot help but show off.

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.
