Ratings & Tasting Notes:

4 stars Michael Broadbent:

“Most recently, actually showing considerable charm, with lip-licking acidity at the exponential tasting. A very attractive wine…” (12/1998)

92 points Josh Raynolds for Vinous:

“I’ve always had a soft spot for the 1981 vintage as well as these two châteaux [Cos d’Estournel and Pavie]… The Cos is a textbook rendition of the old style at the châteaux, with intense cigar box, dried cherry, licorice and pipe tobacco character and smooth, harmonious tannins that have all but faded away.” (08/2015)
