Community Tasting Notes (29) Avg Score: 88.2 points

  • Opened an hour before drinking with lean sirloin steak. Massively tannic and almost black like old-style Cahors. Still way too young to drink, hence the rating, but feel has the potential to magnificent.

  • Drank Pagodes de Cos beside the Cos d'Estournel 2002. The second wine has a beautiful bouquet and is in a really nice drinking stage now. Supple and round tannin and all in good harmony. On the other hand, on the palate the wine doesn't deliver what the bouquet promises. A bit thin on the mid-palate. The Cos itself had a deeper bouquet with even more beautiful oak, smoke, cedar and cassis. On the palate also more concentrated with the same impressions as in the nose and some licorice and bell pepper as well. The other (experienced) tasters who got these two wines blind, only knowing it was 2002 Bdx, were not sure (except for one). They agreed the Cos was more luxurious in the nose and more concentrated on the palate, but the Pagodes was so much more friendly now. They wondered if the second bottle, the Cos itself, would improve with more ageing. Personally I think it will. Three more years of cellaring will probably be wise I suppose; So around 2017. My personal scores for today; Pagodes 89 and Cos 91+

  • Very nice bdx with restrained dark fruit, medium weight,some cigar box. Softening but still present tannins. Very charming. Ready to drink.

  • Much, much better than the previous bottle. Intoxicating nose - Cedar, tobacco, with hints of plum. The wine was balanced and drinking very well. Very good.

  • Bordeaux; that is clear on the nose. On the palate red as well as black fruits, firm acidity and melted tannin. A touch of pleasant barnyard as well as red and green bell peppers. I could drink this wine over a few days and the wine developed for the better. Ready now and a future of a few more years. Really nice, but a little less exclusive than 6 years ago.
