The Winery

Château Cos d'Estournel

Château Cos d'Estournel

It was late on a December afternoon when I first saw it. It was the week before Christmas, and I was in Bordeaux for a few days of tastings, visiting the likes of Chateau Brown, Sociando-Mallet, Margaux and a number of smaller estates. We were on the D2, having already left behind Bordeaux and the communes of Margaux, St Julien and Pauillac; we were heading north into Médoc territory, homing in on our residence after a fairly long day, with dinner and an evening of relaxation ahead. Within the car it was warm, but outside was bitterly cold, as it had been since 8am, when our day had begun with a vineyard inspection and quick pruning lesson. And above us, the sky was beginning to darken as night advanced, ousting the dim light of day. And there, situated on a turn on the D2 just ahead of us, catching a few of those final, fading rays, was the golden sandstone of the chai at Cos d'Estournel, its Oriental pagodas sitting proud and yet conspicuously alien, as if the whole building had recently been lifted and transplanted here from some foreign hilltop.

4/5

I bought it at the behest of a friend.
Classic red cherry color of a 2014. A good smell of flowers, mostly purple colour. It is a very balanced Merlot.
I enjoyed it without pairing.

A good smell of flowers, mostly purple colour. Woody flavour, do not know if the grapes or barrels.
This 2013 has a phenomenal QPR.
