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

Like the G d'Estournel, the Les Pagodes de Cos 2019 is a wine from the Cos d'Estournel stables and, unlike the Cos d'Estournel, it is still very affordable. It is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, aged in 20% new barriques. Medium to deep garnet purple in color, notes of wild blueberries, redcurrants and currant jelly emerge from the glass, followed by a deep core of warm cassis, licorice and bouquet garni with a hint of cinnamon. Medium to Full Boedied, it has aromas of black and red fruit on the palate, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, ending with a lingering spicy note.
