(a 50/50 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Ruby-red. Coolish aromas of black cherry and licorice. Supple, fresh and fruit-driven, with enticing floral lift to the sweet, pliant flavors. Finishes with ripe tannins. Excellent for this second wine.

The second wine, the 2005 Les Pagodes de Cos, is already delicious. Offering plenty of cedar, cappuccino, and black cherry notes in a medium-bodied, seamless style with no hard edges, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next decade.

Currant and sweet tobacco aromas follow through to a full body, with seamless tannins and a ripe berry, tobacco and coffee aftertaste. Enjoyable already. The second wine of Cos d'Estournel.

**Robert Parker: Wine Advocate # 176. Apr 2008. Reviewer : Robert Parker. The second wine, the 2005 Les Pagodes de Cos, is already delicious. Offering plenty of cedar, cappuccino, and black cherry notes in a medium-bodied, seamless style with no hard edges, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next decade. Drink: 2008 - 2018. **Jancis Robinson: Published :13-Apr-2006. Very vibrant, dynamic nose - great intensity. Vigorous, savoury attack and then wonderfully opulent fruit. Lots of richness and ripe fruit but in a pretty strict corset of fine but very chewy tannin. Well done! Definitely St-Estèphe. Always instructive to taste at Cos immediatle after Lafite with Cos so very different and very St-Estèphe. Just falls away a little suddenly on the finish. Younger vine produce in here. When to Drink : 2014 to 2024. **Wine Spectator: Issue: Mar 31, 2008. Currant and sweet tobacco aromas follow through to a full body, with seamless tannins and a ripe berry, tobacco and coffee aftertaste. Enjoyable already. The second wine of Cos d'Estournel. Best after 2010. -JS. **Stephen Tanzer: May/Jun 06. By Stephen Tanzer.( 50/50 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot). Ruby-red. Coolish aromas of black cherry and licorice.

About This Producer


Classified as a Second Growth Bordeaux estate, Chateau Cos d'Estournel is without doubt, one of the top producers in the St. Estephe appellation, producing complex and intense, full-bodied wines. The chateau is often referred to as "super second," meaning that it produces wines at a quality nearing that of the First Growth houses. Cos d'Estournel wines contain a large amount of Merlot (40%), one of the highest percentages in the region, in fact; this gives the wines their wonderful fleshy, chewy texture. The chateau itself is a very unusual pagoda style building which was built by the 19th century owner Louis-Gaspard d'Estournel. The building is featured on the bottle label, making it easy to spot in the Bordeaux section. The estate also produces a second wine called Les Pagodes de Cos.
