Galloni: "The 2021 Cos Labory is a wild, eccentric wine. Dark red/purplish fruit, spice, leather, tobacco and incense lend quite a bit of nuance. There's good depth and plenty of character, but also some slightly rough contours that could use a bit of polishing up. The aromatics in particular feel a bit disassociated."
Suckling: "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."
Decanter: "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."
Falstaff: "Dunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Zart floral unterlegte dunkle Beerenfrucht, ein Hauch von Pflaumen und Kräuterwürze. Mittlerer Körper, rote Kirschen, zarte, gut integrierte Tannine, salziger Nachhall, guter Speisenbegleiter."
