The elegance and freshness of a Bordeaux dry white wine
Situated in the north of the Médoc, on the Saint-Estèphe hill, Château Cos d'Estournel stands in majesty. Like a Maharadjah's palace, the château and its pagodas surprise and captivate the eye. In 1791, Louis-Gaspard d'Estournel inherited hectares of vines and had the estate built. An adventurer who travelled all over the world, his taste for the exotic and the Orient gave Château Cos d'Estournel its architecture, unique to the Médoc. Owned by Michel Reybier since 2000, Château Cos d'Estournel continues to shine in the Saint-Estèphe appellation and joins the ranks of the world's greatest wines, distinguished by its unique style in which a taste for beauty and excellence are a constant pursuit.
A benchmark among the great wines of Saint-Estèphe, Château Cos d'Estournel enjoys an exceptional geographical location. Its vineyards are located on the edge of the plateau, right next to the Gironde estuary. As a result, the vineyards benefit from a maritime climate while being protected from the elements. The vines are planted on two slopes and a central plateau, benefiting from ideal exposure and good ventilation.
