If you want to know what St.-Estèphe smells like, this is it. Aromas of spices, black truffles, forest floor, dried strawberries and tar. It’s full-bodied yet pinpointed on the palate with fabulous density and richness. It’s opulent but in a reserved and checked way. This needs at least five or six years to come around, but it’s already fantastic. What harmony and structure. Try in 2022 if you can keep your hands off it! -James Suckling
 
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. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media
 
The grand vin 2014 Cos D’Estournel is gorgeous, and I think a step up over the 2015. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, this deep, inky-colored 2014 boasts a gorgeous perfume of ripe currants and cassis fruits, loads of chocolaty oak, cedar and scorched earth, full-bodied richness, and building, firm, yet ripe tannin. It’s certainly one of the gems in the vintage, as well as one of the more structured, opulent and age-worthy. Give bottles 4-5 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following two to three decades. - Jeb Dunnuck
 
Dense black fruits nose – exotic; described as ‘bewitching’. Wonderful texture and depth, great richness with fine firmness to back it up. The best ‘modern’ Cos for years. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040. - Steven Spurrier, Decanter 
 
Intense, with a roiling core of luscious loganberry, blackberry and black currant fruit. Singed spice, apple wood and black tea accents emerge steadily on the finish. Has a rare combination of density and precision. Will cruise in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2035. 14,000 cases made. - James Molesworh, Wine Spectator
 
Now owned by the Reybier family, who have undertaken extraordinary renovations at the property, but most impressive is the new cellar. We have visited here several times since the new installation, which is all gravity fed. It remains one of the most impressive cellars in Bordeaux. This wine is clearly one of the top wines of the vintage. In fact, we found all of St Estephe to be of this very consistent quality. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon 33% Merlot 2% Cabernet Franc. The color was black, with blueberry and exotic spices on the nose. This wine is very rich from the front and mid palate, having a very long finish. Lovely sweet ripe tannins with a great freshness, the hallmark of most of the top wines. -GVWM Staff
