  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 89-91

    Aromas of rich berries, plums, spices and pencil shavings introduce the 2022 Les Pagodes de Cos, a medium to full-bodied, rich and muscular wine that's fleshy and extracted while remaining somewhat fresh and vibrant.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 Pagodes d’Estournel is a very sexy wine. Rich, ample and engaging, the 2022 makes a very strong opening impression. Black cherry, plum, licorice, spice and chocolate are front and center. This flashy, radiant Saint-Estèphe is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Firm, chocolatey tannins sustain the finish. Drink 2026-2037.

  • Goedhuis, May 2023, Score: 90-92

    With only 20% new oak, compared to 50% in the Grand Vin, the nose is more fruit-forward than its big brother with heady Morello fruit, and hints of lacquer beneath. The palate has a straightforward entry, flowing into a sensation of nicely ripe fruit in the middle, all balanced by good freshness. Mouth-filling tannins and perfumed sweet cherry ultimately lead towards the bracing finish.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    This is impressive, big and very structured at the beginning, but then it opens and spreads out with ultra-fine tannins that caress the palate. Really opens at the end and finds its weightless state. Serious. 50% cabernet sauvignon and 49% merlot, 1% cabernet franc.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    The 2022 Pagodes De Cos is head-turning good, and it’s going to challenge the 2009 as the greatest vintage for this cuvée to date. Based on 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc, this huge, opulent, full-bodied beauty has terrific purity in its cassis and blueberry fruits as well as notes of graphite, scorched earth, and tobacco. With sweet tannins, a layered, seamless mouthfeel, and a gorgeous finish, this is an incredible second wine that readers will love.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 18+

    2022 is a very successful vintage for Cos, with two-thirds of the harvest going to the Grand Vin and one-third ending in Pagodes. Winemaker Dominique Arangoïts explained that 20% of their blocks are always question marks as to where the fruit might end up, but in 2022, they all went into the Grand Vin. This explains the strength of the vintage, and given that the berry sizes were exceptionally tiny this year, the fruit is tightly-packed and woven with fine-grained tannins. Pagodes is incredibly high quality with stunning depth and freshness, and it is also a keeper. I sense that this will start to drink after ten years such is the grace and reserve shown here.

Château Cos d'Estournel

Resembling an ancient Indian palace, Cos d'Estournel is like no other Bordeaux château. The estate was founded in the early 19th century by Louis Gaspard d'Estournel and the château was built once the vineyards were established as a celebration of his conquests in the Far East.

Resembling an ancient Indian palace, Cos d'Estournel is like no other Bordeaux château. The estate was founded in the early 19th century by Louis Gaspard d'Estournel and the château was built once the vineyards were established as a celebration of his conquests in the Far East. Since 2000, Cos d’Estournel has been in the hands of French hotelier Michel Reybier. Under Reybier’s direction, the château has thrived. In 2007 he commissioned a state-of-the-art wine cellar, the first in Bordeaux to use solely gravity (no pumps). The 91-hectare vineyard is planted to a majority Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot (33%), Cabernet Franc (1%) and Petit Verdot (1%) and produces the Grand Vin Cos d’Estournel and a second wine, Pagodes de Cos.Read less

Region

St Estèphe

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
