Recently Cos d’Estournel seems to always be in the wine news; not always being portrayed in a positive light. Controversial wines, release prices, and the addition to the 100 point club have all been contentious issues, but their president, Jean-Guillaume Prats is deeply entrenched in this estate, its history and its legacy. Situated at the south of St Estephe, the vineyards boarder those of Chateau Lafite. The terroir is excellent and there has always been the potential to produce exceptional wines, this is recognised by its 2nd growth classification in 1855. Now owned by the industrialist Michel Reybier, the chateau boasts one of the most advanced wineries in the Medoc. The building program has certainly rivalled any of the First Growths, and one suspects this is the estate’s intention; to be perceived alongside the most illustrious names of the Medoc.
