Les Pagodes de Cos Saint-Estephe 2010

Les Pagodes de Cos Saint-Estephe 750ML 2010      
Sku: 52176

 Wine Advocate 93 points (May 2011)
The Pagodes 2010 has a broody nose, biding its time in the glass, unfurling to reveal notes of blackcurrant pastilles, cedar, pine and a touch of graphite. Like Montrose, there is a Pauillac-like tincture to this wine. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, a gentle but insistent grip on the entry. Hints of Christmas cake and dates combine nicely with the crisp, fresh blackberry finish. This is an accomplished Pagodes that should drink well over the following ten years. Tasted November 2012.
Probably the best second wine ever made at Cos (although the 2009 should not be discounted), the 2010 Les Pagodes de Cos is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot finishing at 14% natural alcohol. This wine exhibits beautiful, silky tannins as well as sweet, rich mulberry and black currant fruit with hints of spring flowers, licorice and subtle toast. A full-bodied, opulent and -ideal- second wine, most people who have tasted it would probably agree that it is actually better than many vintages of Cos d-Estournel from the 1960s and 1970s. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Wine maker notes
Les Pagodes de Cos is, strictly speaking, Cos d’Estournel’s “second wine”. The vines that produce it are eventually used for the “Grand Vin” which is an 1855 Grand Cru Classe. They are grown on the same terroir and are treated in the same way. They are simply younger and their roots have yet to grow to their full depth in the gravelly soil. Powerful, very aromatic, long on the palate, with a very persistent finish, Les Pagodes de Cos is a wine of refinement and pleasure, to be drunk within ten years of its bottling at the chateau.
