Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
92-93 JS / 91-93 WA / 91-93 VM / 90 DE / 89-91 JD
Blueberry and blackberry character with salt and mineral undertones. It’s medium-bodied with firm, racy tannins and a long finish. Well crafted. - James Suckling
Displaying a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Cos Labory offers classic cassis, ripe plums and kirsch notes, followed by hints of pencil shavings, red roses and damp soil. The medium-bodied palate has great tension and nice, ripe, grainy tannins supporting the tightly wound red and black fruits, finishing on a lingering mineral note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
The 2020 Cos Labory is bright and exuberant in the glass. The purity of the flavors is striking. It will be interesting to see if the tannins settle down a bit. Today, they are pretty piercing in their intensity. Raspberry jam, game, iron, licorice, mint and sweet pipe tobacco lend energy and vibrancy throughout. Cos Labory is a touch austere, and yet it has plenty to offer.
Charming, with an unfussy and welcoming focus on blackberry and black cherry fruits, a little soft through the mid palate, but with plenty to recommend for early-to-medium drinking. Not hugely intense although there are plenty of earthy tannins on display, a little surprising when you see the 30 hl/ha yield. Tasted twice. - Jane Anson, Decanter
Dark red and black fruits, earth, tobacco, and scorched earth notes all emerge from the 2020 Château Cos Labory, and it's medium to full-bodied, concentrated, firm, and structured. It has impressive fruit and good mid-palate depth, but it’s going to need bottle age. - Jeb Dunnuck
