Tasting notes, Robert Parker, 86 points
The 1970 Cos d'Estournel's color remains an impressive dark garnet with ruby/purple tints. The wine is medium to full-bodied, tannic, rustic, and concentrated, but coarse and charmless. It will keep for another 25 years, but I wonder if this wine will ever blossom?

Tasted at “The Sampler” in South Kensington. It has been quite a few years since I tasted this Cos d’Estournel. This bottle had a much more herbaceous bouquet compared to eight years ago: undergrowth, tree bark, dusty mahogany bureau with vestiges of sweet red fruits eventually rising to the surface. The palate is foursquare and conservative with dusty black fruits and a dry, aloof finish that has its own “classic” charm. My feeling is that this can only dry out in the future, so drink any bottles you may own.
