(2010 Vintage) Les Pagodes de Cos is, strictly speaking, Cos d’Estournel’s “second wine”. The vines that produce it are eventually used for the “Grand Vin” which is an 1855 Grand Cru Classé. They are grown on the same terroir and are treated in the same way.
Wine Spectator"Very intense aromas of crushed berries and pressed flowers with a hint of currant bush. Full-bodied, and chewy with lots of tannins but loads of fruit. A muscular, big wine. Very well-done for the second wine of Cos. Best after 2010. 7,500 cases made"
