Former owner and namesake Louis Gaspard d'Estournel was known as the Maharajah of Saint-Estèphe. He decorated the castle in Indian style, gave great parties and lived above his means. In 1852 he was completely destitute and had to sell his domain. He died a year later. Cos d'Estournel is arguably the Chateau with the most new and advanced wine-making technique. From the picking to the maturing of the bottles, everything is carefully checked and executed with the utmost care. For example, they have managed to create a vinification process in which the wine is transported without pumps. All operations are performed by gravity. In 1855, the Chateau obtained the 2nd Grand Cru Classé status

The Cos d'Estournel 2017 is composed of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. The opaque purple-colored Cos d'Estournel offers a beautifully sweet nose consisting of ripe black currants, Provencal olives, smoked herbs, toasted bread and liquorice. Rich and powerful, but also elegant and stylish. One of the most beautiful volumes and rewarded with 98 + / 100 parking points.
