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!

(WE92-94 points) Barrel sample. Very rich, smooth tannins, super-ripe fruit dominate the wine. It has power, spice and sweetness, very ripe. Blackberry and dark chocolate.

A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot (there’s a small amount of Petit Verdot) brought up in roughly 50% new French oak, its deep purple/plum color is followed by a smorgasbord of black raspberry and kirsch like fruits, spice box, dried flowers and licorice. With a huge mid-palate, sweet, sweet tannin, beautiful purity of fruit, and a great finish, it’s an incredibly sexy, satisfying second wine that will keep for another 10-15 years.

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.

Offering waves of ripe, deep red fruits, luxurious textures and a spicy, earthy blast of red and black fruit, you can enjoy this beauty now, while waiting for its big brother to further develop.

Approachable but this should knit nicely with mid-term cellaring. Drink now through 2023. -JM
