Pagodes de Cos 2018 – Saint-Estèphe

The nose is fruity and offers juiciness as well as a fine spicy side. It reveals notes of juicy/pulpy blackberry, pulpy/juicy black cherry and small notes of juicy/pulpy raspberry associated with touches of crushed cassis, fine hints of flowers as well as discreet hints of Cuben pepper, liquorice, cardamom and tobacco. The palate is fresh (beautiful freshness), fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful precision, gourmandize, a fine tension, minerality, suavity, fat as well as a very discreetly fine grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy/juicy wild strawberry and small notes of fleshy/fresh cassis associated with fine touches of flowers, discreet hints of Cuben pepper, liquorice, graphite as well as very discreet hints of cocoa. Tannins are elegant, precise and finely firm. There are fine varietal hints on the finish (bring a very fine and pleasant bitterness which bring gourmandize). Good length. A beautiful wine !
