Wine Notes

Not the most classic example of a Cos d’Estournel but certainly one of the best from the last 15 years. It will be drinking beautifully now but will last a good few years yet.

Producer Notes

We do like a fancy chateau and this is the fanciest going: right up there with Brighton Pavillion in its ostentation. They’re also very big on elephants at Cos d’Estournel, which we approve of.
It is, however, the top wine from our favourite appellation in the Medoc, Saint-Estephe.
The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot.
There’s a second (red) wine known as Pagodes de Cos, an obviously named white wine, and a Merlot-heavy red second wine called Goulée.

Vintage Notes

2008 was a good vintage in Saint Estephe
