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.
86-88 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2007
(a 50/50 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Bright, deep ruby-red. Bright aromas of cassis, licorice, violet and smoked meat. Juicy and on the lean side but with good flavor intensity and subtle sweetness. Not a fleshy style but boasts good fruit and spine. The tannins are a bit dusty and dry.
