Winemaker's Notes:

After winemaking, strictly executed by Mr. Bernard Audoy himself, an œnologist who graduated from the Bordeaux Oenology Institute, the wine is aged for 12 to 15 months in oak barrels, 30 to 50% of which are renewed each year. After fining with egg-white, the whole vintage is bottled at the château.

The wines produced show a lovely color, a rich, complex nose and a structure typical of Saint-Estèphe. Château Cos-Labory is a member of the Académie du Vin de Bordeaux, of the Commanderie du Bontemps du Médoc et des Graves, and also of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux.

My Notes:

About Chateau Cos Labory:

The name of the estate comes from its geographical location on the Cos hill and the name of François Labory, who was the first owner until 1845. Chateau Cos Labory is a real family property, where the generations have genuinely labored already for nearly a century for the estate to blossom and grow. This family philosophy that is a gentle mix of wisdom and strength is what the Cos Labory signature stands for.
