A wonderful introduction to the signature style of the prestigious Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Estephe - Chateau Cos D’Estournel- the Pagodes de Cos 2018 is in line with the most beautiful references of its vintage.
From a selection of vines aged 35 years on average, the Pagodes de Cos Red 2018 was born from a great terroir in the Saint-Estephe appellation of the Medoc, on the left bank of Bordeaux.
A vintage marked by strong climatic contrasts, 2018 required all the attention and know-how of the Chateau Cos D'Estournel technical teams in order to get the best out of the vines.
Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), Merlot (37%), Petit Verdot (6%) and Cabernet Franc (3%), the Pagodes de Cos Red 2018 seduces with its intense aromatic bouquet. Literally gushing from the glass, the vintage reveals magnificent fruity notes. At once seductive and elegant, the palate combines freshness, roundness and suppleness. With great precision and a nice balance, the Pagodes de Cos Red 2018 is one of the most beautiful wines of this vintage.
The 2018 Les Pagodes de Cos (14.51% alcohol) is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, aging in 20% new barriques. Deep purple-black in color, it practically explodes from the glass with rambunctious notions of baked black cherries, plum preserves and crème de cassis with hints of cigar box, fungi, tilled soil and woodsmoke plus a touch of crushed rocks. The full-bodied palate delivers mouth-coating black fruit preserves with a beautiful earthy undercurrent and a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins, finishing with fantastic length. A very serious second wine! Should age incredibly.
