The First 100% Gravity-Flow Wine Cellar In Bordeaux

May 31, 2019

The Bordeaux "super second" Château Cos d'Estournel on the Left Bank in the Haut-Médoc is in the most northern appellation for Grand Crus Classés wines, Saint-Estèphe. Officially classified as a second growth, it is called a super second because in some vintages it performs like a first growth, and undoubtedly, Montrose and Cos d'Estournel are the top estates of the area. But despite Cos d'Estournel having such high regard among Bordeaux wine connoisseurs, the current owner, Michel Reybier, with respect to the original founder, knew that the wines could still be so much more with the help of modern technology.
