Made from fruit from the best plots on the Cos hill, Château Cos Labory combines characteristic Saint-Estèphe vigour and elegance. Its rich tannin content gives this wine good ageing potential.
This eighteen-hectare (44.5-acre) vineyard on top of the Cos hill is blessed with Quaternary gravel soils and exceptional drainage. To extract the best, we strive vintage after vintage to perfect the fit between the plots and the grape varieties. We also choose slow growing rootstocks and keep the planting densities high.
Over time, the changes came gradually through substantial investment into technology, particularly an ultra-modern vathouse and a new cellar. Having decided to vinify the wines at low temperatures to preserve and extract the fruit, we aim to offer wines that age well but are also enjoyable when still young.
