    Product description

    The second wine of Château Cos d’Estournel, the star of St Estephe, alongside Château Montrose that competes with the quality of some 1st growth. A higher percentage of Merlot than the rest of the Haut-Medoc is used in the blend to produce fleshy and richly textured wines.

    “This is delicious second wine from Cos d’Estournel, with spice, meat and currant character. Full body, round tannins and a clean finish. Needs two or three years to soften but it’s already very good.”90pts James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2014

    “The gap between the second and first wines at Cos in 2011 is much narrower than in the last two vintages, partly because the latter underperformed. Cedarwood and Asian spices on the nose and palate, with lots of smoky, charry fruit and good structure. The tannins are a little angular, but this is still a good second wine. 8+ years.”92pts Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, April 2012

    French still red wine from Saint Estephe Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Château Cos d’Estournel

    Château Cos d’Estournel is the star of St Estephe, alongside Château Montrose, and competes with the quality of some 1st growth. Founded in the 19th century by Louis Gaspard d’Estournel who, rather than depending on Bordeaux’s traditional network of negociants, decided to dispatch his wines personally, signing each bottle. Today Michel Reybier owns the estate and has invested in analyses to understand the needs of the vineyard, as well as in innovative techniques with isothermal vats shaped like truncated cones to allow homogeneous extraction during fermentation. A higher percentage of Merlot than the rest of the Haut-Medoc is used in the blend to produce fleshy and richly textured wines. View our selection.

    Vineyard & Winemaking

    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. Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are also part of the vineyard for the production of white wines. The wines are aged for 18 months in 80% new oak.

    Wines Produced

    Cos d’Estournel (grand vin), Les Pagodes de Cos (second vin), Goulée by Cos d’Estournel and Cos d Estournel Blanc (white).
