Why We're Buying
Château Cos Labory is one of 18 Fifth Growths in Bordeaux. Like other châteaux in the appellation, it produces high-quality Bordeaux red blends. When it comes to maximizing your return on investment, note that Cos Labory wines are best consumed young.
Dry, lean and structured, here is a wine that initially seems to be missing its fruit. There are hints of black cherries and plum skins, but they are always going to be surrounded by a heavy tannic presence. -ROGER VOSS
