Absolutely gorgeous on the nose, with currants, blackberries and freshly cut flowers. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a solid core of fruit. This goes on and on on the palate. The essence of class and refinement. Relatively good value, considering the superb quality. No better Cos since 1989. Best after 2010. Rating: 96 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator (Sep 2011)

Dark crimson. Surprisingly low-key nose. Actually, it is almost Lafite like in its low-key raciness. Not at all the dense mode of Cos. Dry finish but not too concentrated. Very appetising and quite racy and ethereal. Interesting. Obviously here for the long term even if not with enormous ripeness and mass. 2015-2032 Rating: 17.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Sep 2011)

It is an outstanding wine, but it is closer to maturity and lacking the concentration, texture, and overall compelling aromatics of more recent vintages. The wine displays roasted herbs intermixed with licorice, incense, black cherry, and black currant fruit. Medium-bodied, rather than full, elegant, with some spicy tannins and a nice sweet finish, compared to the other top classified growths, this wine is on a much faster evolutionary track and can be drunk now and over the next 15 or more years. 2010-2025 Rating: 91 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Sep 2011)

floral, fat, sumptuous, yet dignified by lingering cinder and spice. Rating: 95 Andrew Jefford (Mar 2005)
