Les Pagodes de Cos 2016 is a wine of pleasure, combining balance and voluptuousness. This wine is alluring, with an unmatchable aromatic precision of black fruits. In the mouth, the tannic structure is structured with refreshing smoothness. The wine is so full and fresh, that you would think you were eating the grape. Pure joy. A wine that is very accessible at this stage, and has one of the most interesting guarding potentials.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Les Pagodes de Cos is blended of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46.5% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 0.5% Cabernet Franc. It has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with notions of warm cassis, black cherries and smoked meats giving way to scents of charcoal, underbrush and cloves plus a waft of new leather. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with generous black fruits and some compelling red fruit sparks, supported by ripe, grainy tannins and finishing long and spicy.
