Marks and reviews
Situated north of the Médoc, on the hill of Saint-Estèphe, Château Cos d’Estournel appears in all its glory. Like a true palace of the Maharajah, the château 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 Château Cos d'Estournel, truly unique in the Médoc. Owned by Michel Reybier since 2000, Château Cos d'Estournel continues to shine bright in the Saint-Estèphe 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.
A reference among the fine Saint-Estèphe wines, Château Cos d'Estournel enjoys an exceptional geographical location. Indeed, its vineyard is located 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.
The nose gives off delicious fragrances of white peach, rose, bergamot, lemon and gunflint.
The palate is seducd by this wine’s structure and finesse. The richness and liveliness of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are perfectly balanced by the seductive minerality of the Semillon varietal.
