Born in 1762 during the reign of Louis XV and died in 1853 under Napoleon III, at the remarkable age of 91, Louis Gaspard d'Estournel had one sole passion: Cos. Having inherited a few vines near the village of Cos, he recognized, in 1811, the quality of their wine and decided to vinify them separately.
Editorial Reviews for Château Cos d'Estournel Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe
Very fruit driven aromas greet the nose, very new worldish on the nose with scents of black fruit, black spiced, and green herb tones that are quite intense. On the palate this combines huge ripe fruits with a certain greenness to the tannins. The fruit is not enough to mask the slight bitter edge of the tannins but is rich and full of liquory cassis and blackberry notes. This is a touch weighty and chewy with a rustic edge coming from the tannins but it’s rather matte in the mouth and lacks some freshness. It turns savory on the backend and into the finish, which is marred by the bitterness of the tannins once again. A wine of contradictions 88pts
Had this a while back now so struggling to remember exact details but do recall the bold dark fruit quality yet savoury enough for this to be better suited to a meal rather than drinking on its own. Not bad but I have had better.
I have had much better. This is a lackluster wine. It should be priced under $10.

A classy and impressive young Bordeaux from an appellation that stepped up in rsquo;96. Dark-colored, with plenty of currant and spice aromas, the wine is full-bodied, with velvety tannins and allspice, berry and currant flavors. Long, long finish One of the wines of the vintage, itrsquo;s a beauty. Best after 2005.
Chacirc;teau Cos drsquo;Estournel, consistently producing fine, robust yet fruity, full bodied wines, has yet again fashioned a remarkable vintage. Its impeccable fusion of Cab and Merlot tastes powerful and potent. The tantalizing black currant sweetness and cedar aroma can only be matched by its full, rich finish.
Powerful, highly aromatic, lingering long on the palate with a very persistent finish, "Les Pagodes de Cos" is a sophisticated and pleasurable wine best drunk within ten years of bottling.
(Barrel tasting) Supercomplex, with Indian spices, violets and crushed berries. Full-bodied, with intense, silky tannins and a long, long finish. Best Cos since 1989.
A huge, seamless wine of fabulous elegance. Deep, dark-ruby color. intense aromas of blackberries, spices, mushrooms and bark. Full-bodied and extremely silky, with a long, long finish. Seductive as hell. Best after 2002.
