The slight smarting sensation induced by the price of Cos d'Estournel's grand vin might be eased a little when you consider Pagodes de Cos, superb value at just £186 per six bottles. Tasting at the estate, this second label (not a second wine, as it comes from a dedicated vineyard on the estate) is sometimes almost as impressive and often more seductive than the grand vin itself. With 93-94 points from Suckling and drinking just a year after landing, we suggest grabbing a dozen or so bottles of this to drink, whilst setting aside a case of Cos for investment.
