The elegance and density of a velvety and fresh Saint-Estephe
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 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 Chateau Cos d'Estournel, truly unique in the Medoc. Owned by Michel Reybier since 2000, Chateau 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.
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.
Tasted as a wine future, the Pagodes de Cos red 2019 from Cos d'Estournel present the estate’s unique signature style. The aromatic bouquet combines elegant notes of black fruit and bergamot with floral fragrances of violet and even black tea. Following the attack, the Pagodes de Cos 2019 red caresses the palate with its dense and creamy texture, offering buttered and spicy notes, enveloped in the silky grain of its tannins. This fascinating Cos Pagodes vintage lingers long on the finish, revealing a certain saline minerality and a superb freshness.
