Description

I was able to taste this delicious wine this afternoon!  Considering the quality and the pedigree of this wine, I was astonished by the low price. I highly recommend you take advantage of this opportunity to acquire a back vintage of the lovely second wine of the Super Second Growth Cos Estournel.  We still have an offer on the 2020 Cos, first wine below as well.

Technical Information:

Winemaker: Dominique Arangoits 

Terroir: In the old Gascon language, the word 'Cos' means 'The Hill of Pebbles'. And as a matter of fact, the hill of Cos, which is situated on the banks of the Gironde, is an impressive accumulation of Quaternary gravel wrestled from the distant mountains of the Massif Central and the Pyrenees and laid on Saint-Estèphe's limestone bed when the primeval river receded. Shaped into well-drained slopes by the erosion, these exceptionally deep layers of gravel are a true geological curiosity and also one of the world's most precious terroir, for it forces the old vines planted on its heights to thrust their roots into the arid soil.

Vinification and Ageing: 40 years old vines, aged in barrels of which 30% is new.

A red with very deep and intense fruit character, yet rich tannins to back it all up. Full-bodied, layered and powerful. The second wine of Cos d’Estournel is serious again in 2016. Try from 2025.

93 Wine Enthusiast

Dense and full of dark fruits, this second wine from Cos d’Estournel comes from specific parcels. With blackberry fruits and rich, generous tannins, the wine has weight and concentration. The freshness at the end is so typical of the vintage. Drink from 2023.

93 Jeb Dunnuck

The second wine of the estate is no slouch. The 2016 Pagodes de Cos has some grand vin character in its cassis and graphite aromas and flavors. Showing more incense, graphite, and hints of flowers with air time, this medium to full-bodied, rounded, beautifully textured effort is well worth a case purchase. Drink this beauty, the equal to most estates’ top wines, while you wait on the grand vin to come around.

***This is a pre-order.  Wine will be available in mid-July.  Orders must be paid in full in advance.
