A Charming and Vivacious Saint-Estèphe

Created in 1994, Pagodes de Cos has already established itself as one of the most emblematic Second wines of the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region. Born from a unique terroir, it symbolises all the charm and generosity of great Saint-Estèphe wines with a subtle balance between softness and liveliness.

A vintage of contrasts and challenges, the frost at the end of April 2017 spared the superb terroir of the fabulous Château Cos d’Estournel. The 2017 vintage was put together gradually with plenty of attention paid to the vine at every moment. A flawless knowledge of the plots, combined with the experience and know-how of the technical teams and extremely precise vinifications resulted in a very accomplished Pagoda 2017 by Cos d'Estournel.

Consisting of a typically Medoc blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (42%), Cabernet Franc (1%) and Petit Verdot (1%), the Pagodes de Cos d'Estournel 2017 impresses with its roundness and freshness, displaying the authentic identity of its vintage.

The aromatic bouquet shows great intensity, revealing brilliant fruit aromas. Enhanced greatly by the purity of the fruit, the palate offers a succession of tasty sensations and reveals a generous and velvety texture. Soft, lively and full-bodied, the Pagodes de Cos d'Estournel 2017 is one of the great achievements of this vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, this second wine accounts for about 55% of production. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Les Pagodes de Cos sashays out of the glass with youthful, presumptuous notes of Black Forest cake, raspberry preserves, cassis and spice cake with nuances of lavender, chocolate box, anise and underbrush. Medium-bodied, the palate has wonderful elegance and precision, with a very finely grained frame and seamless freshness supporting the soft-spoken red and black fruits, finishing with a quiet intensity.
