<li>95 points, &ldquo;The 1990 Cos d&rsquo;Estournel is a vintage that I have not tasted for several years. I have always had a soft spot for the 1990. It does not disappoint with gorgeous scents of clove, bay leaf, and warm gravel that are almost Pomerol-like in style. The palate is fresh and lively. This 1990 is very well balanced and eschews the warmth of that summer and allows the terroir to shine. It grips the mouth and offers black truffle and sage towards the slightly grainy textured finish that lingers on the palate. What a sublime Cos d&rsquo;Estournel.&rdquo; &ndash; Antonio Galloni&rsquo;s Vinous</li>

<li>19 points, &ldquo;Really lively and fragrant with much more charm than most St-Est&egrave;phes usually show. I wonder how the famous Ch Montrose 1990 would have shown? This splits the difference between the slightly demanding terroir effect and the richness of the vintage. Great balance. Slightly mineral notes. Rich, round and fruity. Clean, fresh and dense. Very much over-delivers.&rdquo; &ndash; Jancis Robinson</li>

<li>A rare back vintage of Ch&acirc;teau Cos d&rsquo;Estournel with three decades under its belt represents an incredible opportunity for any wine lover. Brimming with jammy dark fruits, leather, spice and toasted coconut, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot is an opulent sensation. Serve this when you need to impress at a business lunch, save it for an anniversary dinner, or give it as a gift that will never be forgotten.</li>

<li>Famed for its exotic architecture adorned with pagodas and Indian influences, Cos d&rsquo;Estournel is &ndash; despite only being ranked as a Deuxi&egrave;me Cru Class&eacute; in the Bordeaux Classification of 1855 &ndash; &ldquo;a wine of First Growth quality&rdquo; according to esteemed wine critic Robert Parker.</li>
