“My passion for wine actually started with my passion for food. Thanks to my mother, who was an excellent cook, I developed very early on an affinity for food. In high school, I didn’t have a lot of money, so I subscribed to all the magazines I could afford to subscribe to, that dealt with food and wine.
My first encounter with Cos came right at that time, in 1982: a friend had bought a 1976 for me to try, and although it was obviously too young, the impression it made on me, even 40 years later, has made me a very consistent friend of Cos and wines.
Now, every time I see the pagodas on the label, it brings me right back to high school. After that, every time I could afford a bottle of wine, I hoped it would be a bottle from Saint-Estèphe.
