Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe

One of the few Bordeaux estates where the winemakers always have had a strong believe in filtration of the wine, both on vats, during ripening and when filling the bottles. Until 1999 when the second filtration was eliminated. The quantity of Merlot is one of the highest in the Haut-Médoc and contributes to the rich, fleshy and bodied structure of these wines over the recent years. Along with Montrose, Cos d' Estournel produces the best wines of Saint-Estephe. The contrast of the newly constructed ultra-modern production facilities versus the striking, almost oriental appearance of the Château make this a very admirable domain. The modern cellars are carried out in such a way, that there is no pump needed for moving of the wines; the wine flows are driven by the force of gravity in terms of quality benefit by reducing the amount of air bubbles in the juice. The name ' Cos ' refers to the hill where the vineyards are located. Divided into 30 plots, the vineyard is about 91 hectares. Planted with 60 % Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and some small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The stony clay soil is an ideal base for these classic Bordeaux varietals.
