Situated north of the Medoc, on the hill of Saint-Estephe, Cos d’Estournel appears in all its majesty. Like a true palace of the Maharajah, the chateau and its pagodas surprise and captivate the eye. In 1791, Louis-Gaspard d'Estournel inherited some hectares of vines and built the estate. A passionate adventurer who travelled the world, his taste for the exotic and the East inspired the architecture of Chateau Cos d'Estournel, truly unique in the Médoc. Owned by Michel Reybier since 2000, Chateau Cos d'Estournel continues to shine bright in the Saint-Estephe appellation and has joined the lineage of the greatest wines in the world. The wines of the estate are distinguished by their unique style, product of an enduring quest for beauty and excellence.
Enjoying an exceptional geographical location, the Cos d'Estournel vineyard is situated on the edge of the plateau, in the immediate vicinity of the Gironde estuary. The vineyard benefits from a maritime climate and is protected from bad weather. The vines are planted on two hillsides and a central plateau, where they experience ideal sun exposure and great ventilation.
Produced in the Bordeaux appellation, the Cos d’Estournel Blanc white 2019 is made with Sauvignon Blanc (65%) and Sémillon (35%).
Tasted as a wine future, the Cos d'Estournel white 2019 charms the nose with its floral and citrus notes, evoking sweet jasmine and tangy, fresh grapefruit.
