    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.
