The 2022 Les Pagodes de Cos represents one-third of this year’s volume and is matured in 20% new oak. It has a sensual bouquet with ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit. It’s delineated and focused but is clearly a Deuxième Vin requiring some bottle age. The palate is well-defined with fine-boned tannins, fresh, vibrant and cohesive with a tensile, slightly peppery finish that lingers long in the mouth. This seems to grow in the glass.
Anticipated maturity: 2027-2045
