Singular & Fascinating


A palace devoted to winemaking

Secluded and mysterious, Cos d’Estournel is situated off the bend of a winding road in the northern Médoc. Beneath its majestic pagodas and behind its heavy sculpted wooden door, the château houses cellars of unsurpassed modernity and purity, a sharp contrast to its ornate façade.

The facilities were designed in collaboration with the team to optimize the processes of winemaking and aging. Architectural form is truly at the service of technique and the château itself remains dedicated to the sole pursuit of winemaking, according to the vision of Louis Gaspard d’Estournel.

A harmonious blend of inspirations

Inspired by its founder’s passion for India, Cos d’Estournel’s unique architectural style has made it an icon amongst the châteaux of Bordeaux. But the site is also deeply rooted in local tradition, as demonstrated by the use of the creamy-hued limestone typical of the region. This harmonious blending of influences is symbolic of the philosophy of the estate.

The main edifice was entirely renovated in 2008.
The beauty of its original architecture was enhanced and state-of-the-art equipment was installed. All was designed and built according to an avant-garde vision and with respect for the environment. Built underground and perfectly insulated, the cellar was conceived to minimize environmental impact and maximize energy efficiency.
Today the château is a softly lit sanctuary where pure lines and contemporary materials like glass and steel play off fine silks and exotic wood.

The Chartreuse
de Cos d’Estournel

A discreetly luxurious haven tucked behind the main edifice, the Chartreuse is the private residence of Michel Reybier, owner of the estate since 2000.

The Chartreuse embraces all the charms and comforts of a local country house while evoking the romantic Asian influences dear to its founder. Elaborate tapestries, fine silks and precious woods play against the warm colors of locally sourced limestone.

Exotic and inviting, voluptuous and authentic, the Chartreuse offers views of an intimate, refined garden and rows of vines as far as the eye can see.
