Les Pagodes De Chateau Cos D’Estournel 2011


This estate’s second wine, the 2011 Les Pagodes de Cos reveals reasonably broad, round, black currant and black cherry fruit notes, medium body, surprisingly good texture and a soft finish. An attractive, plump effort, it will drink well for a decade. It mirrors its grander sibling as it is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot.

• Chateau Cos d’Estournel has a unique and special relationship with India and its royalty dating back to the early 19th century, even before the Medoc classification took place in 1855 under Napoleon.
• It seems the princes and gentry who were sent to Oxford and Cambridge picked up the ‘Claret’ (as Bordeaux was referred to at the time) habit and the full, robust and complex wines of the St. Estephe appealed particularly to them. Then it had to be the Best and Louis Gaspard d’Estournel’s wine it was.
• Winery records have it that over 90% of the Chateaux wines were sent to India during the time.
• The Indian Elephant with a Houdah (elephant seat) is the wineries logo, amongst other odes to this connection with Indian history.
• This wine is created especially for the Grand Palaces of the Taj to commemorate this relationship. It shows the curry spice notes that clearly distinguish the wines of Cos d’Estournel and make it recognizable when tasted amongst the other great wines of Bordeaux.
