Deuxième grand cru classé - AOC Saint-Estèphe

Château Cos d'Estournel, owned by Michel Reybier, is a 91-hectare wine-growing estate located in Saint-Estèphe in Gironde.

The lord of Saint Estèphe, flagship of its appellation, is firmly anchored in its classification, which will make it a potential candidate for the rank of premier cru when the day comes. The high proportion of Merlot can be felt on tasting, without distorting the characteristics of the wine.

What are the characteristics of Château Cos d'Estournel?

Château Cos d'Estournel has a long and prestigious history as a Bordeaux wine estate in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Louis Gaspard d'Estournel gave his name to the estate in 1811. Château Cos d'Estournel was one of the first Bordeaux châteaux to bottle, label and sell its own wine. This practice continued until the death of Louis Gaspard d'Estournel in 1852.

The vineyard located near the border between Pauillac and Saint Estèphe at the southern tip of the Saint Estèphe appellation has changed hands many times. Indeed, it was owned by the Charmolue family, owners of the neighbouring estate of Château Montrose, until 1917, when Fernand Ginestet bought it. In 2000, Château Cos d'Estournel was bought by Michel Reybier who hired Bruno Prats' son, former owner Jean-Guillaume Prats, to manage Cos d'Estournel, while keeping things in the family.

The 91-hectare vineyard of the Château Cos d'Estournel produces a wine composed of:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon 65%
  • Merlot 33%
  • Cabernet Franc 1%
  • Petit Verdot 1%

The vineyard is located near the border between Pauillac and Saint Estèphe at the southern tip of the Saint Estèphe appellation.
