Jean joined the family business in 1996 and within two short years, became the General Manager of the establishment. By the age of 30, he was running one of the world’s most powerful chateaus. In 2000, the estate was bought by current owner Michel Reybier and Jean became the winery’s director.
About Cos d’Estournel
Cos d’Estournel was originally founded in 1811 by Louis Gaspard d’Estournel, who had already inherited vines near the French village of Cos. The winery became known for its quality product which soon began to exceed prices of the most famed wines of the time. Demand was so wide that Monsieur d’Estournel began to export his wine as far as India, which earned him the name of ‘the Maharajah of Saint-Estèphé.’ To this day, exotic pagodas decorate his wine cellars while the company logo carries the distinguishable Indian elephant and decoration. The legacy of d’Estournel legacy continues and is conveyed through the winery’s high standards and constant search for excellence.
