"Toasty and flattering, offering lots of mocha and black licorice up front, followed by lush plum sauce and blackberry cobbler notes, with solid grip underneath." (WS)

"One of the finest wines I have tasted from La Couspaude, the oak is far better integrated in the 2010 than in some earlier vintages (which can often be glaringly woody). This is a full-bodied, powerful effort displaying abundant aromas of kirsch liqueur intermixed with loamy soil, earth and spice. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated with light to moderate tannins, it should drink well for 10-15 years." (WA)

"2010 La Couspade Oak, coffee, licorice, smoke, chocolate and jammy berries open to a plush, ripe, round wine that should drink well shortly after release." (JL)

"A wine with a lot of concentration, with lots of blackberry and dark chocolate. Full and velvety. Sexy and long. Better than 2009.$$" (JS)
