Cos d'Estournel

Saint Estephe Protected Designation of Origin and Second Great Classed Growth

The wines of Chateau Cos d'Estournel

Chateau Cos d'Estournel is located in the heart of the Bordeaux region, on the left bank  of the Gironde. It is a Second Grand Cru Classe of the Saint Estephe designation (Classification of 1855). Michel Reybier (founder of Aoste, the french cured meat brand) has been the owner of Domaine Cos d'Estournel since 2000. Chateau Cos Estournel is easily recognizable thanks to its three octagonal turrets with pagoda style roofs. The vineyard covers 91 hectares of vines growing on clay-gravel and sandy-gravel soil. It's grown following the sustainable winegrowing principles. Four red grape varieties are cultivated: Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (37%), Cabernet Franc (2%), and Petit Verdot (1%).

Three Red Bordeaux wines are produced by Chateau Cos Estournel, including a first great wine called "Le Grand Vin de Cos d’Estournel", and a second wine called "Les Pagodes de Cos". Domaine Cos d'Estournel also produces a third Medoc wine, called "Les Goulees de Cos", made from wines growing in plots that are located outside the Saint Estephe designation, in Northern Medoc. And finally, in 2005, Chateau Cos d'Estournel decided to produce an excellent white whine in the Bordeaux designation, called "Cos d’Estournel Blanc", made from a blend of Sauvignon blanc (75%) and Semillon (25%). The first great wine of Cos dEstournel is an intense and colourful wine, full of blackcurrant, black fruit and spicy notes. It's a wine with great ageing potential. It was particularly successful from 1982 to 1996. Since the 2000s, this grand cru has greatly improved. The 2009 vintage even got the best tasting note (100/100) from Robert Parker! This wine's great vintages are: 201520142010, 2009, 20052003200019961995199019861985, and 1982. These vintages' ageing potential is so great that they can be kept in the cellar for up to 30 years. The second wine, "Les pagodes de Cos", is silky and full of charm. It's more accessible than the great wine. It’s not meant to be aged and can be enjoyed within 10 years. The white "Blanc de Cos d’Estournel" is a full-bodied and powerful wine. Patience is required for the good vintages to display all their complexity and richness. Read our last Vertical tasting of Château Cos d’Estournel report here (in French).
