Château Cos d'Estournel

What more recognizable Château in the Saint-Estèphe appellation than Cos d'Estournel with its oriental style and pagodas? An exceptional wine with an identity all its own, and nothing to envy anyone. In 1811, Louis Gaspard d'Estournel acquired several hectares of vines not far from a place called Cos, or "hill of pebbles".

It wasn't long before he was touring the world promoting his wines, even as far away as East India, where they were much appreciated by the maharajas. A reputation that earned him the nickname "Maharajah of Saint-Estèphe". Work then began on Château in 1830, offering the famous Far East-inspired architecture, with pagodas and elephant statutes.

His reputation earned him the title of Second Grand Cru Classé in the famous 1855 classification for the Paris Universal Exhibition. Owned since 2000 by entrepreneur Michel Reybier, numerous technical renovations have been undertaken, with the aim of constantly striving for excellence and precision.

Today, the vineyard covers 100 hectares of vines, an average age of 45 years, two-thirds of which are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. They are used to produce the grand vin and Second vin, Pagodes de Cos. Some plots, however, are planted with white grape varieties, Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc, used to produce Cos d'Estournel blanc and Second vin, les Pagodes de Cos blanc.

Description Pagodes de Cos 2016.

Displaying a magnificent deep, intense red color, the wine offers itself to us with an intense, gourmand bouquet. Notes of red berries are revealed, as are floral notes of violet. A hint of vanilla adds complexity. On the palate, the attack is fresh and juicy. The mid-palate has good tension and firm tannins. The fruit on the nose expresses itself with great intensity, revealing great finesse and elegance. The finish is superb and suggests very good ageing potential.
