Château Cos Labory

Ideally located at the gates of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Cos Labory derives its name from the locality "caux" meaning hill of pebbles coupled with that of its 1820-1840s owner, François Labory. Passing through the hands of different owners, it was finally acquired by the Audoy family in 1971.

The Château Cos Labory was named Fifth Grand Cru Classé in the famous 1855 classification for the Paris World's Fair.

In March of the year 2023, Château Cos Labory will pass into the hands of Michel Reybier, owner of its famous neighbor Cos d'Estournel. The property will nevertheless remain independent and will continue to produce a wine with its own identity.

The Château Cos Labory is based on an 18-hectare vineyard, of which 58% is Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. The wines are aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new.

The property produces a Second wine, Charmes de Cos Labory.

The Château Cos Labory produces wines that are full of finesse and elegance, yet do not forsake a beautiful tannic frame and a well-built structure.

Description Château Cos Labory 2016.

Born under the best auspices of a great year, very sunny, with alternating rain between veraison and harvest.

The bloom was very fine, transparent, with an exceptional quality of flesh.

The color is garnet with some purple reflections.

In the first attack, the bouquet expresses aromas of small black fruits such as blackberry and blackcurrant followed by fine touches of acacia honey and cedar wood.

The balance in the mouth is very tense with a pleasant acidity and tannins of great finesse, with an elegant, complex finish, and a very beautiful persistence conducive to prolonged aging.

Perfect for long-term aging in the cellar, away from light and noise with an optimum degree of 70% to reach its peak in the years 2024/2026 with a continuity of around ten years.
