Château Cos d'Estournel

Château Cos d'Estournel

What other Château more recognizable on the Saint-Estèphe appellation than Cos d'Estournel with its oriental style and pagodas? An exceptional wine with an identity of its own and which has nothing to envy to anyone. In 1811, Louis Gaspard d'Estournel acquired several hectares of vines not far from the place called Cos, or "hill of pebbles". He soon travelled all over the world to promote his wines, including as far away as the East Indies, where they were much appreciated by the maharajas. A reputation that will earn him the nickname of "Maharajah of Saint-Estèphe". Then, the works of Château will begin from 1830, offering the famous architecture inspired by the Far East, with the pagodas and the statutes of elephants.

His reputation is worth it to obtain the title of Second Grand Cru Classé to the famous classification of 1855 for the World Fair in Paris. Owned since 2000 by entrepreneur Michel Reybier, many technical renovations have been undertaken there, in order to always aim for more excellence and precision.

Today, the vineyard reaches an area of 100 hectares of vines, averaging 45 years old and planted two-thirds with Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. They are used to produce the grand vin and the Second wine, the Pagodes de Cos. Some parcels are however planted with white grape varieties, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, used to produce the white Cos d'Estournel and the Second wine, the white Pagodes de Cos.

They rest on a magnificent gravelly ridge that looks out over the Gironde estuary, two elements that allow for natural soil drainage and thermal protection against frost, respectively.

The wines of Cos d'Estournel offer a unique moment of tasting. They are complex, fine and deep, with a perfect balance between fruit and substance.

Description Pagodes de Cos 2014.

This is the Second wine of Château Cos d'Estournel, Saint-Estèphe, second Grand Cru Classé following the prestigious 1855 list, awarded to Napoléon III.

2014, a year of good weather conditions, conducive to the birth of a wine of excellences. La robe is deep purple with fine black jade highlights.

On the palate as on the nose: beautiful presences of small black fruits such as cherry from Itxassou in the country of the Navarre Basque, blackberry cream, blackcurrant elegantly mingled with touches of Virginia blond tobacco and white flowers.

Very long and charming finish with a magnificent hint of minerality.

This is a wine for cellaring over the next 10 years, with successive tastings from now on to watch for its qualitative peak.

The wines will be stored bottles lying down in the cellar, protected from light and noise, with an optimal hygrometric degree around 70%

To be decanted a few hours before tasting at room temperature to give the wine time to express the rich range of its nuances.
