Les Pagodes De Cos 2009, Saint-Estèphe


Free Delivery with Orders over £95

"The brilliant 2009 Les Pagodes De Cos actually has more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than the grand vin (69% versus 65%) in addition to mostly Merlot and a small quantity of Petit Verdot. As powerful as the Cos in terms of alcoholic clout (14.5%), the full-bodied, round, generous Les Pagodes De Cos exhibits lots of crème de cassis and floral notes intermixed with hints of wood/barrique and spice. Juicy, succulent and remarkably fresh and well-delineated, it merits considerable attention from consumers. It should drink well for 15-20 years. Oddly enough, the second wine is superior to many vintages of Cos in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s! 94 Points"

Les Pagodes De Cos is, strictly speaking, Château Cos D’Estournel’s second wine. The vines that produce it will eventually used for the Grand Vin which is an 1855 Grand Cru Classé. They are grown on the same terroir and are treated in the same way, they are simply younger vines and their roots have yet to grow to their full depth in the gravelly soil.
