"Cos d’Estournel has softened those austere Saint-Estèphe tannins and produced a wine that is all opulence and roundness. The tannins are certainly there, but they come through as big, bold richness. The power suggests it will age well, but for drinking earlier, the freshness of the sweet homemade plum jam promises well."

"The exceptional 2006 Cos d’Estournel is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot, 55% of the production was utilized. Revealing superb intensity for a 2006 as well as an inky/blue/purple color, and a sweet bouquet of blue and black fruits, licorice, graphite, and charcoal, this full-bodied 2006 possesses high levels of sweet tannin. This wine is characterized by a freshness and precision that give it a 1996-like affinity. Enjoy this beautifully concentrated, exceptionally pure, statuesque Cos d’Estournel over the next 20-25 years. By the way, it was bottled without any fining or filtration."

Wine Spectator 93
"Blackberry, black licorice and violet aromas follow through to a full body, with soft, silky tannins and a pretty, balanced finish. Refined and flavorful. Best after 2014."

Neal Martin 92
"Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Cos d’Estournel ’06 has a very opulent, gregarious nose: high-toned, slightly volatile black fruit with a hint of eau-de-vie. The palate is full-bodied with firm, bold tannins, rich and decadent but certainly disjointed at the moment. There is something Tuscan/Napa Valley reminiscent in this Saint Estephe that is so daringly spicy and exotic towards the glossy finish. Like your best friend that cannot help but show off. Tasted January 2010."
