Robert Parker : 95/100


Rated 95/100 by Parker, the 2008 red Château Cos d'Estournel is a first-class Cabernet Sauvignon wine! In an explosion of fruity aromas, which are still very fresh, such as blackcurrant, black fruit and spices, it imposes its powerful and elegant palate with firm tannins, underlined by a magical quality of texture. In a tonic register, this 2008 wine seduces by its rigor, its classicism and its allure. It is a great Bordeaux as we like them, born of a cold vintage and as such, retaining all the freshness and uprightness that we expect from a great Medoc.


Hand harvested. Traditional Bordeaux vinification. Aged 18 months in new oak barrels.


Intense and dark garnet red.


Subtle perfume of red and black fruits underlined by full-bodied aromas.


Voluptuous and fruity, this wine is of an incredible finesse. The silky and velvety tannins caress the black fruit aromas like velvet.


Serve at 16 to 18°C.

Food and wine pairing:

Beef from Clavisy and white truffle from Alba, caramelized pigeon on a crushed carrot, roasted lamb chop ...

Cellar aging:

From now until 2040

2nd Grand Cru Classé, Château Cos d'Estournel is one of the most iconic signatures of the Médoc. Michel Reybier watches over it with rigor and intuition, giving it the distinction and aura it deserves; his style has been refined over the years, and now finds an uncommon expression, combining power and elegance with a magical smoothness of tannins.
