A big, enveloping wine, the 2015 Pagodes de Cos wraps around the palate with serious depth and intensity. The flavors are rich, voluptuous in this bold Saint-Estèphe. Mocha, black cherry, plum, licorice and menthol meld into the voluptuous, creamy finish. This is a highly appealing second wine from Cos. The blend is 46% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Pagodes de Cos is a blend of 46.2% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5.8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot that will be matured in 30% new barrels. It has a generous bouquet of earthy, sous-bois-tinged black fruit, delineated if not as intense as the 2014 I recall from 12 months ago. The palate is medium-bodied and shows a little more sophisticated than the aromatics, principally because of the appealing fineness of the tannin and how well the oak is enmeshed into the fruit. That lends it a smooth and silky texture, and I suggest that after 2-3 years in bottle, this should drink nicely for up to another decade. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2029

46% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot. 30% new oak. IPT 57. Dark crimson. Very dark. Very fragrant - almost Cabernet Franc aromas.

Very good crushed berry fruit and a much more elegant style than before. A polished wine with depth and spice, silky texture and exotic spices; very well made. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2030

Not before time, Cos has gone back to its classic style. The second wine suffered slightly from the rains that hit St. Estèphe late in the season in terms of fruit weight, but has good backbone and structure and a refreshing, medium-bodied finish. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2025

Made from selected parcels, this is a wine that has its own style, generous and ripe with just a backbone of tannins. The acidity is right up there with its bright character and blackberry juice flavors. The core is firm and dark, showing its aging potential. APr 2016, Roger Voss, www.wineenthusiast.com
