Chateau Cos d`Estournel


2nd Growth
Louis Gaspard d`Estournel, known as the Maharajah of Saint Estephe, was the founder of Chateau Cos d`Estournel. Having inherited some vines near the village of Cos he quickly recognised the quality of certain amongst them and decided in 1811 to vinify them separately, thus the wines of Chateau Cos d`Estournel were born.

The word "Cos" means hill of pebbles in old Gascon language and it is true that the vineyards of Cos d`Estournel lie on exceptionally deep layers of gravel, forcing the vines to extend further down into the earth while helps concentrate the grape flavours. The vineyards are further aided by a unique microclimate that prevents extreme fluctuations of temperature.

The wines of Cos d`Estournel have become known for a style that is masculine yet elegant & powerful yet smooth. 1990 benefited from perfect weather conditions.

The bouquet is gourmand in style with aromas of ripe caramelised fruits, spices, nutmeg, sandalwood and a minty edge. Impressive body in the mouth wit

h a sensational structure and soft close-knit tannins. The finish is long and silky. A wine with great aging potential.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon
40% Merlot
A wine of great class to be paired with fine traditional red meat dishes such as steak in a pepper or mushroom sauce, roast beef with caramelised vegetables, roast lamb with a herb crust, cheese and herb stuffed mushrooms.
