The 2017 vintage is characteristically round on the palate but also offers its own unique charm. Silky and immensely fresh, it is a lively, energetic wine with intense fruit. Velvety with a dense mid-palate, it is particularly flavorsome and enticing.
Blend: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

Inky purple colour. Intense spicy aromas inviting deep fruit. Very intense and creamy textured with soft red and black fruits and rounded tannins. Juicy black fruit. Huge extraction and depth with powerful tannins, rounded black fruit, and fresh acidity. Deep and long finish. Very good indeed.
94 Points - James Suckling
This wine shows wonderful depth and richness, yet it’s so fresh and vivid with dark berries, dark plums, and spice. Full-bodied, balanced and creamy with beautiful flavors and structure. So many spices in this. Only 12% alcohol. Second wine of Chateau Cos-d’Estournel. Better after 2022.
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
This wine has velvet tannins and lusciously ripe black fruits. Despite the tannins, it is more about fruit and ripeness than about structure. Drink in 2022.
92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, this second wine accounts for about 55% of production. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Les Pagodes de Cos sashays out of the glass with youthful, presumptuous notes of Black Forest cake, raspberry preserves, cassis, and spice cake with nuances of lavender, chocolate box, anise, and underbrush. Medium-bodied, the palate has wonderful elegance and precision, with a very finely grained frame and seamless freshness supporting the soft-spoken red and black fruits, finishing with a quiet intensity.
