Always excellent for the vintage. What a nose with currants, blackberries, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stones and wet earth too. Full-bodied and refined yet muscular and trim. Fabulously polished tannins. Try drinking in 2020.

Plenty of exotic spices, saffran, clove, black pepper, turmeric, cassis, with sandalwood, gunsmoke and cedar smoke. Both character and bite, with plenty of impact. 50% of overall production, this is a successful Cos...

Wine Enthusiast, May 2015

This is one of the vintages from Cos that seems to pull out all the stops. The fruit is so rich, the texture so dense, and deep flavors of chocolate back up the huge structure. It does work in its magnificent, flamboyant...

The 2012 from Cos d'Estournel is a streamlined, elegant version of this cuvée that offers first rate notes of crème de cassis, graphite, smoked herbs and saddle leather, with hints of oak pushed into the background...

Deep in color, with Asian spice, licorice, espresso and wet earth scents open the wine. On the palate, the wine is polished, round and smooth, with cassis, licorice, cocoa, coffee bean and black cherries in the...

Vinous, September 2022

The 2012 Cos d'Estournel has a perfumed bouquet with blackberry, cedar, undergrowth and black pepper aromas all well-defined and focused, with more vigour than many of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with...

Wine Spectator, January 2016

Solid, with pure lilac and violet notes out front, backed by slightly taut plum, currant and bitter cherry flavors that unwind slowly through the finish. This has good drive, cut and intensity, and is one of the better...

Decanter, July 2018

I have not loved all the 2012s that I have tasted recently, but this is seriously good, tasting extremely enticing and open right now. It errs on the side of opulence and pleasure, and although the oak is a touch too...
