Château Cos d’Estournel 2010, St Estephe, Bordeaux

Country: France

Colour / Style: Red

Alternative selection for: Episode 1

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

Even at its current price, Cos is one of the most affordable of Bordeaux’s top wines. Darker, more muscular and austere than Margaux, this is wine-making perfection. If you have a celebration in 15 years or so, this claret will make it an epic event. Keep the menu simple and classic.
