The brilliant 2009 Les Pagodes de Cos actually has more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than the grand vin (69% versus 65%) in addition to mostly Merlot and a small quantity of Petit Verdot. As powerful as the Cos in terms of alcoholic clout (14.5%), 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! Wine Advocate.February, 2012

This is very deep and limpid in colour. The second wine of Cos d’Estournel has an intense nose of blackberry, smoke and tobacco, with a touch of Saint Estephe tertiary aromatics. A second sample is more lifted and glossier. The palate is full-bodied, a lot of extraction, pure blackberry, bilberry, spice and a touch of liquorices. Huge grip on the finish with just a hint of sweet dates. Tasted March 2010.

Spices, nutmeg, dark fruits on the nose, follow through to a full body, with very precise tannins and a long finish. A beautiful and racy wine. Second wine of Cos d'Estournel. Better in 2017. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Wow. Intense aromas of blackberry, toasted nuts and spices follow through to full body, with layers of fruit and wonderful length. Very, very impressive. For a second wine, this is quite the glassful

Very deep crimson – a real glow. Floral nose – rather exotic but with a few notes of greenness. Thick and sweet on the front end, almost tarry – very drying tannins on the finsh after massive sweet hit. A bit overripe. Just too much. Drying tannins on the finish. Apparently the old Marbuzet fruit goes into Pagodes. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
