While Cos d’Estournel 2006 has required a delay in opening, the wine reveals itself today as absolutely pleasant and smooth. The tannins remain powerful and lengthened, in a wonderful concentration, the freshness and vividness of the aromas balancing perfectly this vintage. The shiny side of the fruit stands out particularly for this wine, energetic and delicious at the same time.
In the old Gascon language, the word ‘Cos’ means ‘The Hill of Pebbles’. Appropriately named, Château Cos d’Estournel is situated on the banks of the Gironde River between Pauillac and St. Estèphe, where the property is clearly defined by the hill of Cos, reaching to a height of almost 65 feet. It is today owned by Michel Reybier, and continues to be managed by a member of the Prats family under the direction of Jean-Guillaume Prats. This renowned property produced distinguished wines since the early 1800s to the present day.
