Tasting Note:

There has been a revolution in the southern corner of St Estephe. We were taken by surprise, and honestly, we weren't entirely convinced. This range of 2018s is the most cohesive and impressive in this new chapter for Cos. Made from a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, this Pagodes de Cos is a rather smart effort. There's good intensity, lots of bright cherry, nice clarity, quite simple fruit, but there’s a perfume and finesse and most importantly tension we haven’t seen here for a while. Furthermore, the tannic profile is really quite polished and sophisticated; quite moreish and suave. The best Pagodes in many a year.
