Tasting Notes

"Cos this year (2015) is showing lovely and balanced. It is correctly youthful and not giving away the half of it yet. Nonetheless, it offers cinnamon notes and ripe cassis with cigar and tobacco leaf touches. It is ripe and intense with good concentration." Xenia Irwin, Waitrose Partner & Wine Buyer

This is an immensely dense wine that is going to be a classic. The dark tannins are still lined with wood aging but that will go because the fruit underneath is also just as dense and intense. Blackberry, black plum and damson plum give power and sweetness. This is a great wine with huge potential." Wine Enthusiast

Château Cos d'Estournel

Cos d'Estournel has a history dating back to 1811 and over 300 years their wines have grown in reputation.

The Chateau's first owner was the eccentric Louis Gaspard d'Estournel and at the age of 91 started to export his wines too far off places such as India. With his success in India, he was given the name 'the Maharajah of St. Estèphe'. To celebrate his distant conquests, he had exotic pagodas erected over his cellar, organised spectacular festivities at Cos and presented the great people of this world with some precious bottles of Cos "Returned from India".

Unfortunately a year before Louis death he was forced to sell the estate to English bankers Martyns, two years before the supreme consecration of his work: the imperial classification of 1855 placing Cos d'Estournel at the head of the St. Estèphes.

The following 150 years saw the estate pass through several hands until in 2000 it was bought by Michel Reybier. Michel continues to improve and develop these wines while keeping with the history of producing wines to a high standard.
