Château Cos d'Estournel, classified as a 2ème Cru Class, is a Grand Cru vineyard located in St. Estèphe which covers 170 acres separated from Château Lafite, along the southern edge, by the stream between St. Estèphe and Pauillac. The gravelly soil, over a flint, limestone and silicate subsoil low in nitrogen, has eroded over centuries to form steep ridges which perfectly drain the vineyards. Le Medoc De Cos is typically a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc – do not be fooled by the relatively high Merlot content, as these are full-bodied, dark, brooding tannic wines when young which develop a complexity and intensity that can rival many top growths from Pauillac.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a good structure that's overlaid with wood flavors and given richness by the generous black fruits, but everything is in balance. The dry core is enveloped by the fruit and fresh aftertaste.

Food Pairing

A fillet of duck with Porcini mushrooms or a rack of lamb with thyme and small spring vegetables, but also an old Gouda.

Grape Variety: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
