This is a glorious expression of Bdx. A left bank example which is strutting its stuff. 18 years in, its beginning to reveal cigar and cedar notes on the nose. Palate displays cherries, spice box, cinnamon and kirsch. No rush to consume these. Easily another 10 years of runway ahead of it.

I am admittedly a #cosgirl and this wine was everything that I love about great Bordeaux, silky fruit-laden texture without overt density or weight, and gorgeous graphite, dried herb, leather, licorice and earth notes.

Weekly Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 3-4 whites, 3-4 reds and 1 dessert wine format. Served blind. I called this left bank Bordeaux from the get go. It showed a ripe side at first but quickly settled in to some saddle leather, pepper, tar, tobacco and bay leaf. Power is in the mid palate and finish here as tannins were still strong. Black tea, black cherry, oak and a streak of greeness down the palate. No rush.

Insane nose. So lush. Great. Spectacular actually.

Wifey is unwell, and subtly directed me to focus on the French stuff, so here we are... For once, “I got my mind right, boss,” and let this breathe for 5 hrs, and lawdy, this is singing. The nose offers up new oak, cinnamon and a hint of molasses. The palate presents ripe and balanced. Tannins are still bold, but frame the wine superbly. Finishes with black fruits and uncommon sweetness for a bdx example. After my week-day sabbatical from alcohol, this represents a great three-finger salute (control-alt-delete).

Brett and new oak do more disservice to the wine than the 2002 vintage.

Ethereal, in a great place now. Lovely poise and grace with a long tail.

Opened like a normal 2002, all vegetal, but two hours later it was bursting with fruit! Give it time and it will impress you.

Incredible, but I must say that this needs more time! On the nose, blueberries, blackberries, and the textbook Cos Indian spice signature. Palette is toasty, with ripe tannins. Beautiful weight and sensuality, with pristine acidity. It's immature, and therefore needs a lot of breathing space, if you pop the cork now. A super effort, with an excellent trajectory.

This was such a treat to enjoy. Excellent representation of the vintage and region. Lovely left bank style with very restrained mid-dark fruits, cassis, clove.
