Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
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.
"It is good to see this estate, which is trapped in the shadows of its across-the-street neighbor, Cos d'Estournel, begin to fashion better and better wines. Soft, sweet tannins and loads of ripe, opulent black currant fruit intermixed with smoke and dried herb characteristics are found in the 2004 Cos Labory. This forward, evolved, medium-bodied effort should drink well for 10-12+ years. It is a very pretty sleeper of the vintage.
The Wine Advocate
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.
