Sitting in the heart of the world's most famous wine region, Cos Labory is a real family property, where the generations have laboured for nearly a century for the estate to blossom and grow to what it is now. 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. Mr. d'Estournel then acquired the estate before selling it again to an English banker, Charles Martyns in 1852. The property was finally taken over by George Weber in the 1930's and he bequeathed it to his daughter and son-in-law, François Audoy in 1959.
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 the wine good ageing potential. It is typically a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet franc and today, around 100,000 bottles are produced each year, making this a relatively small estate.
Despite the level, the colour of this wine is good. Whilst the level is usually a good indicator as to the likely quality of the wine, we have enjoyed numerous fine wines with similar levels and what a great price!
