Taking its name from the hill or Cos on which the vines are planted, this wine is dense and full of firm tannins. The fruit is there as well, ripe black currants waiting to come through the tannins. Give this wine time and drink from 2026. (RV)
Cedary oak, red berries, fresh leaves and lightly spiced woody notes here. There’s a nicely crafted mid-palate focus of cola, mulberries and red plum fruits. The tannins wrap nicely around a fresh finish. Try around 2021.
Lovely rich, plummy fruit here, with an enjoyable tannic structure and freshness. This is a good 2015, focussing on maintaining juiciness in the fruit without sacrificing structure. One of the earlier drinking wines in St-Estèphe - give it four or five years to integrate further then get stuck in! (JA)
The 2015 Cos Labory is powerful, dense and super-concentrated. Although the new oak remains prominent, the wine has really come together very nicely during its aging and is now much more harmonious than it was from barrel. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, licorice and crushed flowers are all sketched in bold tones that convey an extroverted style. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. (AG)
The 2015 Château Cos Labory is a solid wine sporting a deep purple color as well as medium to full-bodied notes of ripe black fruits, damp earth, and subtle oak and lead pencil aromas and flavors. With good concentration, a fresh, focused style on the palate, and good overall balance, drink it over the coming decade or so.
New chai for this vintage. Dark crimson. Savoury nose. Solid with edges of velvet. Rather more flattering than the average St-Estèphe.
