The 1996 possesses an opaque purple color, as well as pure aromatics consisting of cassis, grilled herbs, coffee, and toasty new oak. Massive in the mouth, and one of the most structured and concentrated young Cos d'Estournels I have ever tasted...It is a fabulous Cos... Robert Parker

Tried côte à côte with the Gruaud Larose 375ml, this was a little one dimensional, primary fruit, showing more oak, think it needs another 5 years.

Lots of mushroomy earth and wet leaves. Some barnyard and animal funk. Black and res fruit intermingled but this is an earth bomb. Just the way i like it.

After 95', what could rival this fabulous vintage? A monumental one! Ripe black cherries and black plums, a velvety structure lifted by a menthol nose.

Such a suave, powerful nose with a spicy soy & Chinese five spice that is perfectly married to the ripe blackcurrant fruit, cedar, graphite & gravel, still youthful, loads of time ahead of it. Uber balance on the palate, seamless but silky tannin will handle meat. Beautifully ripe and rounded with a rich chocolate and black fruit length, still has much to give
