Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling

Intense, with plenty of flint, dried herbs, dried lemons, guava and a smoky touch. Medium-to full-bodied with bright acidity. Concentrated, yet vivid and energetic. Tangy. So delicious. 85% sauvignon blanc and 15% semillon. Barrel Sample: 93-94

V 93
The 2021 Les Pagodes de Cos Blanc is bright, punchy and super-expressive. Technical Director Dominique Arangoits added a bit more Sémillon than normal, which helps give the wine its striking mid-palate presence. Lemon confit, almonds, chamomile and sage build nicely in this attractive second wine from Cos. Bright saline notes linger on the taut, salivating finish.–Antonio Galloni
Barrel Sample: 91-93

I loved the 2021 Pagodes De Cos Blanc, a white well worth grabbing ahold of. White grapefruits, citrus, tons of salty minerality, and some minty herb notes all emerge on the nose, and it's pure, crisp, and vibrant on the palate. It's a second wine, but it certainly doesn't taste like it.
Barrel Sample: (91-93)+

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2021 Pagodes de Cos Blanc unwinds in the glass to exhibit notions of crisp citrus and orchard fruit mingled with hints of gooseberries and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and seamless, it's taut and concentrated, concluding with a saline finish.
Barrel Sample: 90-92
D 90
Grape typicity on the nose, vanilla bean, lemon grass and orange - juicy and lively, so fresh. It’s light but poised, not massive in terms of weight or fat, this is streamlined and succulent but direct, there’s no messing around here. Sharp and direct with crushed stone lingering while the lemon, bitter grapefruit and creamy apricot settle on the tongue. Racy, I like it. Drinking Window: 2022 - 2030.

Chateau Cos d'Estournel, France
Chateau Cos d'Estournel  Winery Video
Chateau Cos d'Estournel is a Grand Cru vineyard located in St. Estephe. Its oriental facade is adorned with three pagoda turrets, all cast in a soft golden sandstone. Chateau Cos d'Estournel today covers 170 acres separated from Chateau Lafite, along the southern edge, by the stream between St. Estephe and Pauillac. The gravelly soil, over a flint, limestone and silicate subsoil low in nitrogen, has eroded over centuries to form steep ridges which perfectly drain the vineyards. The vineyards are planted 60 percent in Cabernet Sauvignon vines, 2 percent of Cabernet Franc, and 38 percent in Merlot. Naturally, the percentage of Cabernet or Merlot in the composition of each vintage depends on the climate which favors one grape variety or the other.

St. Estephe Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Deeply colored, concentrated, and distinctive, St. Estephe is the go-to for great, age-worthy and reliable Bordeaux reds. Separated from Pauillac merely by a stream, St. Estephe is the farthest northwest of the highest classed villages of the Haut Medoc and is therefore subject to the most intense maritime influence of the Atlantic.

St. Estephe soils are rich in gravel like all of the best sites of the Haut Medoc but here the formation of gravel over clay creates a cooler atmosphere for its vines compared to those in the villages farther downstream. This results in delayed ripening and wines with higher acidity compared to the other villages.

While they can seem a bit austere when young, St. Estephe reds prove to live very long in the cellar. Traitionally dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, many producers now add a significant proportion of Merlot to the blend, which will soften any sharp edges of the more tannic, Cabernet.

The St. Estephe village contains two second growths, Chateau Montrose and Cos d’Estournel.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
