Château Cos d'Estournel
Château Cos d'Estournel is one of the top Haut-Médoc wine producers in Bordeaux’s St.-Estèphe region. The property sits on 200 acres with an impressive, yet somewhat quirky 19th century château (hand-carved doors imported from Zanzibar and Asian-style pagodas). Proprietor Bruno Brats, who was known internationally as a wine ambassador, famously owned the property and his son Jean-Guillame manages the estate today. The vineyards at this cos are planted with mostly Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grapes, which produce richly superior deuxième crus reds.
