How Cos d’Estournel Does It

June 21, 2019

Gravity is the ethos behind much of what happens in the Cos d’Estournel cellar. It governs the motion in the winery, from how their cone-shaped tanks gently extract tannin from the grapes to how the wine gets how it gets to the bottling floor. Pauillac may have a reputation for wines with less elegance but Cos’ d’Estournel’s process, along with the range of microclimates and soils in their vineyards are the reason it is a “super second” growth. If you want to purchase premium wine, Cos d’Estournel is every bit as good as a first growth.
