2018 Château Cos d’Estournel, 2ème Grand Cru Classé Saint-Estèphe is soon to be released. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for information on this En Primeur release.
Château Cos d’Estournel is the star of St Estephe that competes with the quality of some 1st growths. Founded in the 19th century, today Michel Reybier owns the estate, and is innovating using detailed technical analysis and using isothermal vats to allow homogeneous extraction during fermentation. A higher percentage of Merlot is found in the Cos blend compared with the rest of the Haut-Medoc, and this helps produce fleshy and richly textured wines
The 91 hectares of vines are planted with two third of Cabernet Sauvignon, but also Merlot and a small proportion of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, with an average of 45 years old vines. The wines are aged for 18 months in 80% new oak.
