2012 Les Pagodes des Cos St. Estephe
Wine Enthusiast - "Named after the Chinese facade of this most extraordinary of wineries, this wine is ripe and smooth in a style that brings out richness and a round character. It’s already totally integrated, solid while also very generous."
James Suckling - "This has very well-integrated tannins with dark fruits and blueberry. Medium body, with fine tannins and a pretty finish. Refined. I like the balanced fruit. Lacks some middle palate, but clean. Second wine of Cos d’Estournel. 88-90 Pts"
Vinous - "The 2012 Les Pagodes de Cos is quite open and expressive today. Silky, polished tannins wrap around a core of red-fleshed fruits, sweet tobacco, cinnamon, crushed flowers and dried cherries. Drink this forward, juicy Saint-Estèphe over the next handful of years."
Robert Parker - “ Their second wine, the 2012 Les Pagodes de Cos (60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot), exhibits soft tannins, a deep ruby/purple color, sweet plum, black cherry fruit, a round, generous mouthfeel and excellent purity and depth. ”
