1999 Château Cos d'Estournel
Ruby. Dark fruits, red berries, cassis, vanilla, spices, some scented notes but still woody. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fruity, structured, wood on the palate as well but less so, needs time still for me. 9

1996 Château Cos d'Estournel
Ruby. Weird nose of rose hips, herbs and wood. Fresh acidity, lean fruit. With more air, (double decanted) and after almost two hours some darker fruits appears, the nose gets fruitier, the palate somewhat rounder. Weird bottle, but have had something similar with 1996 bottles before from different producers. Another bottle from the same case may be superb. Cork was in great condition on this bottle, no leakage. 86
