Maison Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe AOC 2003

The allure of distant lands. Like a lone adventurer returning from a solitary voyage, Cos d’Estournel unveils its secrets slowly. It conjures up tales of far-off places, bustling market stalls adorned with exotic fruits, spices, and treasures, village celebrations bathed in the warmth of joyous crowds and the setting sun, and lavish visions of elegant ladies and their enchanting curves. A symphony of aromas, colors, and flavors delights the senses. The Grand Vin of Cos d’Estournel is both modest and irresistibly seductive, an enchanting and refined elixir.

Despite the sweltering heat during the harvest, the grapes maintained remarkable freshness, harmoniously blending it with exceptional richness. This exquisite balance of vivacity and precise fruit expression sets this wine apart. Its exuberant bouquet and the combination of freshness and warmth in its finish leave a lasting impression, while its aromas reveal themselves in a captivating crescendo.
