Marks and reviews
Situated north of the Médoc, on the hill of Saint-Estèphe, 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.
G d'Estournel is a Médoc wine that stems from a terroir located in the northern part of the Médoc vineyards, at the mouth of the Gironde estuary.
Cabernet Sauvignon (19%)
Cabernet Franc (1%).
Delicate and crystalline, the nose exudes a beautiful salinity, conferred by the sea breeze, with fragrances of rosemary, liquorice and morello cherry. Throughout the tasting experience, the bouquet seduces with its great finesse.
A lively attack precedes a mouth whose velvety feel is sustained by a slightly bitter feel on the mid-palate. The palate is seductive with its roundness as well as its delicious hazelnut notes.
