65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. For Aymerich the 2014 Cos was a late born baby - and he is clearly a proud father as he finds it bewitching. It certainly is a great wine. Deliciously fragrant nose of dark red fruit and some sweet rolling tobacco. This is nicely dense, there is a lovely, very precise feel to the intense dark core. A rather luxurious texture is backed up by the deliciously fine grained tannins, this finishes very long and very focused, just such good balance. Rating: 96 L&S (Apr 2015)

The 2014 Cos d’Estournel has another intense bouquet with blackberry, graphite, tobacco and mint aromas, almost Pauillac in style. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin that exert plenty of grip. This is surfeit with sappy black fruit, graceful and tensile with a beautiful, svelte finish that fans out gloriously. There is real panache to this wine, persistent and satisfying, the aftertaste of graphite and tobacco extraordinarily long. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Very deep crimson. Clean, fresh attack. Very rich and smooth and worked. Intense and attention-grabbing. Sweeter and plummier than some – which is arguably not an attribute in a St-Estèphe. Drinking range: 2023 - 2038 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)

The 2014 Cos d'Estournel is rich, powerful and seductive, with notable unctuousness but a medium-bodied frame. Plum, blackberry jam, bittersweet chocolate and lavender notes flesh out in an effortless, sumptuous wine that will provide superb drinking for the next few decades. The 2014 needs time to shed some baby fat, but it is quite impressive, even in the early going. The blend is 65 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 33 % Merlot and 2 % Cabernet Franc. Drinking range: 2022 - 2044 Rating: 95+ Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com(Feb 2017)
