About Cos d'Estournel
Across the street from Medoc giant Lafite-Rothschild, Chateau Cos d'Estournel stands up well to its famous neighbor. The winery dates back to 1810, when Louis Gaspard d'Estournel christened the site and began producing wine.
93-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998
Deep ruby-red. Profound, soil-specific aromas of cassis, redcurrant, graphite and pepper, along with a floral perfume. Penetrating, juicy and very intensely flavored, with terrific backbone and density. Really builds in the mouth. The palate-staining finish features tongue-coating tannins and sappy black cherry flavor. This wine features above-average pH for Cos, but the acidity comes across as firm and fresh.
