Small cru bourgeois ( supérieur ) acquired in 1997 by Baron Velge who considers it as his jewel (7 ha). Very few of the northern Medoc's crus have yet started to convert to organic farming due to the higher humidity than anywhere else in the Gironde. However, after 7 years of efforts (and the loss of 2/3 of the 2018 harvest), and under the leadership of its technical director José Bueno (23 years at Mouton-Rothschild), de Côme has become the first Saint-Estèphe cru to be certified organic, offering a supple, fine and silky version of the appellation.

Dupont (Le Point) :
Quarin : 88/100 « Bouche juteuse et surtout très savoureuse qui fond au palais, gracieuse et très plaisante, sans être très longue. Du plaisir de suite. »
Martin (Vinous) : 86-88/100 « The 2019 de Côme has quite a tight blackberry and soy tinged nose that doesn't quite match my expectations. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, quite saline in the mouth but it needs more depth and complexity on the finish. »
