Pretty dark ruby. Very heady perfumed and complex on the nose. Some graphite. But very lifted too. Something a little Lafite-like. Lovely mellow perfectly mature gentle stuff. Very fine boned and complete. Classic claret. Lovely finish. Not a hint of tannin, nothing out of place. Dry but not drying finish. Unusually 'feminine' for a Cos. For me the wine that was the most delightful of all to drink now. 2000-2020 Drinking range: 2000 - 2010 Rating: 18.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Sep 2011)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

A spectacular performance for this wine, Cos d'Estournel's 1982 exhibits a dark ruby/purple colour with light pink at the rim. Sweet aromas of jammy black fruits intermixed with roasted espresso and vanillin jump from the glass of this young, concentrated, full-bodied, succulent effort. An opulent texture, low acidity, and splendidly pure, concentrated, blackberry and cassis fruit suggest this 1982 can be drunk now, or cellared for another 15-20 years. An awesome wine! 2000-2020 Rating: 96-96 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Mar 2005)
