Château Cos d'Estournel Les Pagodes de Cos Saint-Estéphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009 (1500ml)

$139

...brilliant...the full-bodied, round, generous Les Pagodes de Cos exhibits lots of creme de cassis and floral notes intermixed with hints of wood/barrique and spice. Juicy, succulent and remarkably fresh and well-delineated, it merits considerable attention from consumers. It should drink well for 15-20 years. Oddly enough, the second wine is superior to many vintages of Cos in the 1960s 1970s and 1980s! Robert Parker

Starting the week off right with the second bottle from Chateau Cos d'Estournel the 2009 Les Pagodes de Cos. This is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, cassis, green bell pepper, chocolate, violets, cedar, spice, and earth. On the palate I am able to get notes of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, cassis, green bell pepper, asian spice, tobacco and earth. This a beautiful full bodied smooth fresh mouthfeel with medium + to high acidity and medium + to high mouth coating grippy sweet tannins that lead into a long dark fruit spicy earth finish. What a great way to start the week. This second bottle would be a classic first anytime. Have a great week ahead and pleas stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia!

Very attractive. Still quite tight. Leather, tar. Dark profile. Burst of spice through the finish.

Chocolatey tasting truffles. Progressively better after 1-2 hours.

1hr+ decant. Dark red color. Restrained nose with some cherry aromas and a little plum. Wine is very tight, with some bing cherry. Lovely texture is the highlight. Short finish. Seems like a dead or off bottle, but no clear indications from the bottle, cork, or wine color. Disappointing to say the least!

Super concentrated dark fruit, tannins incredibly structured, a bit of spice and herbs, finishing the lingering palette nicely!
