2016 Futures Update: Cos d'Estournel Released

We’re thrilled to announce that 2016 futures from Cos d'Estournel are now available for purchase. Many petit Châteaux have released their futures prices over the last few weeks, but Cos d'Estournel is the first of the highly rated classified growths to drop. Like most Bordeaux futures, it is highly allocated and very much in demand. The pricing was in line with the Château’s 2015 futures release prices, which is a good indicator that we can expect attractive pricing from other top Châteaux.

The 2016 growing season in the Northern Médoc was truly idyllic – superior even to the renowned 2015 vintage. The hot, dry summer and impeccable harvest conditions resulted in perfectly ripened grapes. Château Cos d'Estournel along with the estate’s second wine & Bordeaux blanc stood out among the myriad of excellent Northern Médoc wines that we sampled on our trip to En Primeur. Order now to secure these stellar wines at first tranche pricing.

"The finish is something else here. This is a wine that’s so powerful and tannic yet at the same time so polished and superb on the finish. Full-bodied, beautifully crafted and precise. This is a wine that really grabs your attention. The agility and power are more than impressive. Wow is the word." JamesSuckling.com, April 4 2017

"A layered and deep white with beautiful fruit giving mango, sliced-lemon and green-pineapple character. Full-bodied and so flavorful. Love the phenolic balance. One of the best dry whites of the vintage." JamesSuckling.com, April 4 2017
