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 2010.
Adorned with an elegant ruby color with dark red highlights, the wine opens with a powerful initial nose of fresh strawberries, raspberries and redcurrants. Hints of vanilla, mocha and smoke arrive in Second plan, adding depth to this delicate blend. On the palate, the wine is both powerful and full-bodied, with firm but well-integrated tannins. A lovely woodiness supports the greediness of the fruit. A subtle tension is felt from mid-palate to the finish giving a sensation of freshness that lingers for long Second.
