Château Cos d’Estournel  Les Pagodes de Cos 2010

Overview

Les Pagodes de Cos is, in the strictest sense of the term. Cos d‘Estournel’s Second Wine. The vines producing this wine will be blended in a few years time in the Grand Vin of the 1855 Grand Cru Classification. These vines belong to the same terroir and are given the same careful treatment. They are simply younger and their roots do not penetrate the gravelly soil so deeply. Powerful, very aromatic, long in the mouth and with a very persistent finish, Les Pagodes de Cos is a refined wine offering a moment of great pleasure. This wine should be drunk within the ten years after being Château bottled.

Winemaking

At the start of fermentations, the tannins released were spicy with a highly original chalky flavor. The high alcohol content enabled slower than usual fermentation and higher quality extraction. The high alcohol level also lent roundness and fullness to the wine. Thanks to the total gravity system of our new cellar, we were able to control this exceptionally tannin-rich harvest.
