COS D'ESTOURNEL Saint-Estephe "Pagodes de Cos" 2009
Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Tasting notes: The 2009 vintage starts out soft and seductive on the palate, going on to show magnificently well-defined flavours of wild berries, blackcurrant, and cinnamon. A real treat! The tannins have softened, and the wine now has a beautiful satin texture. A subtle, underlying warmth makes it rise far above its supposed rank in the Médoc hierarchy. In fact, 2009 Pagodes de Cos is on a par with numerous grands vins. It is clearly an outstanding, generous, perfectly ripe wine with sumptuous finesse.
