Remarkably lush and supple for the appellation, yet not lacking in density, with rich plum, cassis and blackberry confiture notes leading the way and flickers of charcoal, tobacco and singed iron keeping the almost-flattering finish honest. Approachable, but this should knit nicely with mid-term cellaring. Drink now through 2023.–JM

Les Pagodes de Cos d'Estournel 2010

2010 les pagodes de Cos

Probably the best second wine ever made at Cos (although the 2009 should not be discounted), the 2010 Les Pagodes de Cos is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot finishing at 14% natural alcohol. This wine exhibits beautiful, silky tannins as well as sweet, rich mulberry and black currant fruit with hints of spring flowers, licorice and subtle toast. A full-bodied, opulent and -ideal- second wine, most people who have tasted it would probably agree that it is actually better than many vintages of Cos d-Estournel from the 1960s and 1970s. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. These are two terrific wines from Cos d'Estournel. Proprietor Michel Reybier will have to continue his great success over the next decade without his top lieutenant, Jean-Guillaume Prats, who has taken another job, but the estate seems to be in superlative condition, and at the very top of its game.

Juicy and supple, with a forward, fruit-driven persona that delivers plum and cherry preserve notes, lined with subtle anise and lilac flavors and carrying through to a rounded, accessible finish. Drink now through 2018.–JM

2008 Les Pagodes de Cos

A lighter version of the 2010 Pagodes, the 2008 offers up aromas of herbs, incense, charcoal, black currants and cherries. An elegant, mid-weight wine with sweet tannin as well as an attractive, open-knit personality, it should drink nicely for a decade.

2011 Les Pagodes de Cos

This estate’s second wine, the 2011 Les Pagodes de Cos reveals reasonably broad, round, black currant and black cherry fruit notes, medium body, surprisingly good texture and a soft finish. An attractive, plump effort, it will drink well for a decade. It mirrors its grander sibling as it is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot.
