RATINGS

90Wine Spectator

Lovely and fruity, with loads of vanilla, berry and currant character. Full-bodied, with round and soft tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Very nice.

PRODUCER

Château Cos-Labory

Château Cos-Labory was founded in the mid-19th century by Francoise Labory, who combined his name with the name of a nearby hill when he named the estate. After changing hands several times, the Audoy family acquired the estate, and they own and run it today. With 44.5 acres of vineyards the estate makes a flagship wine and a second wine, Le Charme Labory.

REGION

France, Bordeaux, St.-Estephe

Saint-Estèphe is in the northern Médoc, on the left bank of the Gironde River. Although it has no First Growth estates, its five Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Growth châteaux are notable, and, in recent decades, have become favorites with reviewers and consumers. Some reviewers also note that the appellation is today making excellent Cru Bourgeois wines, which frequently offer good value. There are 3,404 acres of vineyards and a variety of soil types, from gravelly soil to soil with significant sand or clay. The two Second Growth Châteaux in St.-Estephe are Cos d’Estournel and Montrose. The Third Growth Calon-Ségur is widely admired. The principal grapes grown are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
