Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

Balance and freshness to this, with firm tannins and currants and crushed berries at the end. Crushed stone and even peaches. Dried spices, too. Nicely done for the vintage. - James Suckling.
Sweetly scented on the nose. Succulent with a shot of cherry and raspberry juice alongside perfume and spiced cedar touches. This is delicate in terms of its weight and texture - more linear and direct with a subtle fruit intensity and fine tannins that coat the mouth. Stops a little short with the chalkiness closing the palate down a bit soon. Freshness is abundant and this has good acidity. Will be interesting to re-taste in bottle with ageing surely going to add density and roundness. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
The 2021 Cos Labory has a light, perfumed bouquet of cedar-infused black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins. A bit light on the finish, but it retains balance. Old school claret, really – and there’s nothing wrong with that. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media.
