Pagodes de Cos 2015

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

Pagodes de Cos has been made since 1994, but since 2015 it was re­vamped with a fresher, bolder la­bel that re­flects its at­trac­tive, se­duc­tive out­look. This sec­ond wine of Cos d’es­tour­nel is a con­sis­tent per­former, com­pris­ing 46.2% Mer­lot, 44% Caber­net Sau­vgignon, 5.8% Caber­net Franc and 4% Petit Ver­dot, typ­i­cally from younger 30+ year old vines that will go into the Grand Cru in fu­ture. Volup­tuous due to the vin­tage, care­ful wine­mak­ing has wo­ven the tan­nins into the ap­peal­ing fruit, bring­ing about bal­ance and silky ex­pres­sion. While it would pair beau­ti­fully with tur­key or roast beef, the bot­tle ben­e­fits from cel­lar­ing an­other 10 years. En­quire at Oaks Cel­lar
