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 creme 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!

Represents 44% of total production at the chateau. Shows a ripe flashy nose with intense dark berry aromas and exotic spices. Lush and rich on the palate generously endowed with layers of fruit followed by ample sweet tannins.

Spices nutmeg dark fruits on the nose follow through to a full body with very precise tannins and a long finish. A beautiful and racy wine. Second wine of Cos d'Estournel. Better in 2017.

Remarkably lush and supple for the appellation yet not lacking in density with rich plum cassis and blackberry confiture notes leading the way and flickers of charcoal tobacco and singed iron keeping the almost-flattering finish honest. Approachable but this should knit nicely with mid-term cellaring. Drink now through 2023. -JM
