The second wine, the 2005 Les Pagodes de Cos, is already delicious. Offering plenty of cedar, cappuccino, and black cherry notes in a medium-bodied, seamless style with no hard edges, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next decade.
The second wine of Cos d’Estournel is from selected parcels of lesser or young vines. This produces a style that is soft, with jelly black fruits, dense but generous tannins and a juicy aftertaste. Open and likely to be ready to drink in 4-5 years.
Magnum. Dense ruby. There’s a bit of oak here but it’s extremely user-friendly. Polished and sweet. Lots to like even if this is not classically dry.
Ruby-red. Coolish aromas of black cherry and licorice. Supple, fresh and fruit-driven, with enticing floral lift to the sweet, pliant flavors. Finishes with ripe tannins. Excellent for this second wine.
Currant and sweet tobacco aromas follow through to a full body, with seamless tannins and a ripe berry, tobacco and coffee aftertaste. Enjoyable already. Best after 2010.
