Cos Labory

Grand Cru Classé en 1855
The Audoy family
Château Cos Labory takes its name to the word “caux”, meaning “stony hill,” and to François Labory, who owned the estate from 1820 to 1840.

Purchased in 1845 by Monsieur d’Estournel, Cos Labory was sold in 1852 to Charles Martyns, an English banker. Included in the famous 1855 classification, this great growth belongs to the Audoy family for over half a century.

Located on the famous gravelly rise of Cos, the eighteen-hectare vineyard benefits from remarkable sun exposure. It is planted with traditional grape varieties.

Major investments have been made over the past several years and Château Cos Labory now relies on the latest technology to produce their great wines.

Great attention is paid during fermentation and ageing, which are adapted to the character of each vintage. Cos Labory combines power, elegance, and the typical structure of a great Saint-Estèphe.
