  • Goedhuis, April 2015, Score: 93-95

    For me, this is unquestionably one of the most exciting wines made at Cos d’Estournel for many years, highlighting the affinity of the northern Médoc to this vintage. With 65% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, this wine is a deep colour, with rich flavours of black fruits and spice. Its natural density of fruit is beautifully supported by a fine volume and freshness. Classy and very rewarding.

  • Neal Martin, April 2015, Score: 93-95

    The Château Cos d'Estournel 2014 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc picked between 25 September and 10 October at 33.7 hectoliters per hectare. The pH came in at 3.77 and an IPT of 87, quite high compared to some other properties in the northern Médoc. It has "cool" nose, by that I mean it is not a flamboyant set of aromatics like the 2009 or 2010, but rather "streamlined" and focused, very delineated with black fruit intermingling with incense and iris. It is very controlled. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, but "full" tannins in the mouth that lend this Cos d'Estournel impressive volume. There is an unerring purity here, a gradual crescendo of intensity towards a peppery finish that lingers long. This is an impressive Grand Vin - classic Cos d'Estournel. Tasted three times with consistent notes.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2015, Score: 92-95

    The 2014 Cos d'Estournel brings together gorgeous textural richness and ripeness, yet retains considerable aromatic freshness. Mocha, red plum, raspberry jam and rose petals are all beautifully nuanced. I very much like the sense of translucent energy here. Sweet floral and spice notes add to the wine's racy, voluptuous personality. Today, my impression is that the 2014 Cos will reward consumers with a long window of pure drinking pleasure. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

  • James Suckling, March 2015, Score: 96-97

    I love the style of this Cos with so much Indian spices constituting the aromas and flavors here. Full body, fine tannins and an ultra-long finish. Excellent structure and length yet this maintains finesse.

  • Decanter, April 2015, Score: 95

    Dense black fruits nose – exotic, described as 'bewitching'. Wonderful texture and depth, great richness with fine firmness to back it up. The best 'modern' Cos for years. Drink: 2020-2040

  • Matthew Jukes, May 2015, Score: 18.5+

    (65 Cabernet Sauvignon, 33 Merlot, 2 Cabernet Franc) | 80% new oak. | 14.2% alc. | 87 IPT. This wine is dense in colour and mind-expanding in its depth of fruit and oak on the nose. It seems initially to be a very powerful and dark wine with rich tannins and serious depth – the violet and blackberry notes are stunning and they expand on the palate. The malevolent swarm of dark fruit is, however, tempered by aromatic spice and herbal flashes. By all rights this should be a much darker, bigger and heavier wine on the palate, but it is rewarded with lifted aromatics and it is surprisingly light on its toes. This is a swaggering Cos with velvety, terroir-driven fruit and it will drink earlier than expected but still have the persistence to last a long time at its peak. It is amazingly balanced already and hugely impressive. The other point about this wine is that it is totally and utterly related to the second wine Pagodes (q.v.) – very few second wines resemble their parents in this vintage and this is to be noted.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2015, Score: 18

    65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. 80% new oak. Dense colour. Really very luscious indeed. A streak of St-Estèphe iron filings but surrounded by the more opulent fruit. Fine and refined. More fun than Lafite! Masses of tannins and density. Shorter than some vintages, such as 2005! 14.2% Drink 2024-2045

  • Tim Atkin, May 2015, Score: 97

    After a stylistic wobble in 2009, Cos has made a run of impressive wines in recent years. The 2014 is right up there with the very best of them: deftly oaked, spicy and green pepper scented with a core of sweetness framed by fine-grained tannins and underpinned by tangy acidity. Drink: 2022-35

Resembling an ancient Indian palace, Cos d'Estournel is like no other Bordeaux château. The estate was founded in the early 19th century by Louis Gaspard d'Estournel and the château was built once the vineyards were established as a celebration of his conquests in the Far East. Since 2000, Cos d’Estournel has been in the hands of French hotelier Michel Reybier. Under Reybier’s direction, the château has thrived. In 2007 he commissioned a state-of-the-art wine cellar, the first in Bordeaux to use solely gravity (no pumps). The 91-hectare vineyard is planted to a majority Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot (33%), Cabernet Franc (1%) and Petit Verdot (1%) and produces the Grand Vin Cos d’Estournel and a second wine, Pagodes de Cos.Read less

Region

St Estèphe

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
