Château Cos d'Estournel 2019
Château Cos d'Estournel is a Deuxièmes Cru, or 2nd Growth, in the 1855 classification of Bordeaux. It is one of the "Super Seconds" of Saint-Estephe, arguably producing the commune's best wine year after year. The Château gets its name from a Gascogne word, "caux", which loosely translates as a hill of stones. The cellar is famous for its Oriental inspired architecture.
The wines of Cos d'Estournel are long-lived with a distinct masculine elegance that do an amazing job of combining power and grace. The wines are very aromatic and concentrated with a balanced mix of bold fruit and sharp minerality all framed by healthy flavors of new oak. Pair with a hearty steak au poivre.
