Chateau COS D'ESTOURNEL Saint-Estephe "Les Pagodes De Cos" 2016
You Save 12% ($20.00)
Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot
Tasting notes: Deep purple-black in color, it practically explodes from the glass with rambunctious notions of baked black cherries, plum preserves and creme de cassis with hints of cigar box, fungi, tilled soil and woodsmoke plus a touch of crushed rocks. The full-bodied palate delivers mouth-coating black fruit preserves with a beautiful earthy undercurrent and a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins, finishing with fantastic length
About the winery: Chateau Cos d'Estournel's name comes from its 19th century owner Louis Estournel. The chateau itself is unique, with its pagodas, elephant sculptures and bells inspired by Louis' trade missions to India. Always considered one of the top names in Saint Estephe, the wine is typically bold with great balance that expresses itself over decades.
