Last Year EP $84.00-

Pagodes is the second wine of Cos d'Estournel and is, of course, made in the same stunning new winery as Cos itself. It is a more approachable version of the grand vin and usually of classed growth quality.
2023 is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

The 2023 Les Pagodes de Cos has turned out beautifully, offering up aromas of cassis, orange zest, vine smoke and incense, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and polished palate with a deep core of fruit, supple tannins and a lively, mouthwatering finish.
91-93 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

Vivid ruby colour, reserved aromatics, well balanced, chalky slightly austere tannins, less exuberant than the 2022 vintage, while still delivering seductive and highly spiced black cherry and cassis fruits, showcasing the potential of St Estèphe in the vintage. 20% new oak. In organic conversion.
93 Jane Anson.

The 2023 Les Pagodes de Cos makes a strong statement out of the gate. A blast of intense dark fruit, leather, spice, menthol, game, liquorice, dried herbs and chocolate infuses the palate with remarkable textural intensity. Ample and resonant in the glass, with fabulous balance, Les Pagodes is exceptionally fine in 2023. The long, sustained finish is a thing of beauty.
92-94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.

The polished and creamy texture here is extremely attractive, with blueberry, blackcurrant and crushed-stone aromas and flavours. It's medium-bodied with linear tannins, showing polish and finesse. Creamy mouth-feel. Second wine of Cos.
93-94 James Suckling.
