Deep colour with hints of violet. Spicy nose, with notes of orange peel and blackcurrant leaves. Gentle attack on the palate with a tightly woven, very smooth texture. Delicious, elegant, clean, superbly balanced wine. Long 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.
