“Grandiose,” “immense,” “exceptionally balanced”: to describe the 2018 vintage of Cos d’Estournel, only superlatives will do.
During the En Primeur week in April, we welcomed more than 2000 wine merchants, brokers, distributors, journalists and critics to taste and assess our wines during their ageing. It was last June that the 2018 vintage of Cos d’Estournel was released for consumers all over the world.
The tenth to be crafted in our gravitational cellars, the 2018 vintage demonstrates the incredible ability of our terroir to adapt to highly contrasted meteorological events.


Cos d'Estournel 2018

Finely structured and vibrant, Cos d’Estournel 2018 is both powerful and balanced, with very soft tannins. It offers a multitude of nuances, including remarkably elegant spices and an extremely long and lingering finish.
It is an extraordinary vintage with immense cellaring potential that will surely count among the most legendary vintages of the estate.

Cos d'Estournel Blanc 2018

A sublime vintage with notes of floral blossoms, exotic fruit and fresh almond, Cos d’Estournel Blanc 2018 also has a lovely mineral quality. This year the estate’s Sémillon has surpassed itself, and proves a wonderful counterpart to an equally magnificent Sauvignon Blanc, resulting in a wine with exceptional complexity.
2018 marks a new era for Cos d’Estournel Blanc: the balance, freshness and cellaring potential have been taken to the extreme, resulting in a supremely sophisticated, finely crafted wine.

Pagodes de Cos Blanc 2018

Pagodes de Cos Blanc 2018 is the result of fourteen years of experience producing white wines and the estate’s outstanding vines, the oldest of which are thirty-four years old. They have fully reached their potential and deliver an exceptional white wine.
Very floral with notes of citrus fruit, the first vintage of Pagodes de Cos Blanc is a delicate, refined wine that is at once delectable and quite accessible.
