The former owner and namesake Louis Gaspard d'Estournel was known as the Maharaja of Saint-Estèphe. He decorated the castle in Indian style, gave great parties and lived beyond 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 winemaking technology. From the picking to the maturing of the bottles, everything is carefully checked and carried out with the greatest care. For example, they have managed to create a vinification process in which the wine is transported without pumps. All actions are performed by gravity. In 1855 the Chateau obtained the 2nd Grand Cru Classé status

The 'Goulée d'Estournel', the vineyard in the Médoc of Chateau Cos d'Estournel has been renamed under the new name and label 'G d'Estournel'. This new packaging should make the connection with the wines of Ch. Strengthen Cos d'Estournel more strongly. After all, G d'Estournel is made by the Cos d'Estournel team with the same requirements and care as for the Grand Cru Classé. This wine comes from a vineyard north of the Médoc along the Gironde, close to the port 'Goulée'. The vineyard has an average age of 35 years and produces very intense wines with a minerality due to its location close to the ocean and the Gironde. The G de Estournel is a typical Medsoc blend namely Merlot 90% & Cabernet Sauvignon 10%

The G d'Estournel' has a beautiful ruby red color with purple hues along the edges. In the nose we smell red and black fruits alternately, fresh touch and spices such as black pepper. The freshness of the location close to the mouth of the Gironde is evident and gives the wine a nice freshness. graceful, perfumed and so elegant. The silky tannins give 2019 a real sense of finesse elegance.

- James Suckling 92-93 “This is really fresh and compact with wet-earth, blackberry and conifer character. It's medium bodied, tight and focused. Solid.”

- Antonio Galloni (Vinous) 91-93 “Gracious, perfumed and so elegant. Silky tannins and lifted aromatics give the 2019 a real feeling of finesse that is impossible to miss. All class, an absolute winner.”

- Jane Anson (Decanter) 92 “Accessible already, but should drink well for a good decade. The freshness from its location close to the Gironde estuary is clear and necessary.”

  • Chris Kissack (Winedoctor) 92-94 “A finely composed structural framework, neatly knit together. For the Médoc this is a fantastic result.”
