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.
87-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
(65% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot and 2% petit verdot; 70% of total production; 3.4 g/l total acidity; 3.55 pH; 71 IPT; 13.3% alcohol): Bright ruby. Very fresh aromas of blackcurrant, minerals and cinnamon. Fresh and pure wine in a polite style, with sneaky concentration of flavor. Finishes with very good length. Pagodes has been on a roll of late.
