Another great success in 1996. Fine, powerful, sleek nose. Definite minerals – not unlike Lafite. Dry finish but lots of obvious quality and zest before the strong hit of tannins – which are just at the limit of acceptability for the weight of fruit - on the finish.

Château Cos d`Estournel is named after its 19th century owner, Louis-Gaspard d'Estournel, and it was he who built the bizarre oriental edifice that is a landmark for any tourist in the Médoc. Today Cos d'Estournel is without doubt the leading estate in St-Estéphe. It is located in the south of the appellation on the border with Pauillac and its vineyards are superbly sited on a south-facing gravel ridge with a high clay content, just north of Lafite.
