The 2009 vintage starts out soft and seductive on the palate, going on to show magnificently well-defined flavours of wild berries, blackcurrant, and cinnamon. A real treat! The tannins have softened and the wine now has a beautiful satin texture.
There is a subtle, underlying warmth that makes it rise far above its supposed rank in the Médoc hierarchy. In fact, 2009 Pagodes de Cos is on a par with numerous grands vins. It is clearly an outstanding, generous, perfectly ripe wine with sumptuous finesse.
