Cos d'Estournel Blanc 2019 (750ML)
92-94+ Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon aging in French oak barriques, 8% new, the 2019 Blanc is all limes and lemons to begin, soon opening out to reveal nuances of peach blossoms, wet pebbles, green apples and struck match with a touch of coriander seed. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with citrusy flavors, possessing impressive weight and creamy texture, finishing with loads of mineral layers and bags of freshness." 6/20
"The 2019 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is terrific. Broad and resonant in feel, the Blanc offers a compelling mix of richness and energy. Citrus peel, flowers, mint, sage and white pepper lend aromatic brilliance. The 35% Sémillon in the blend adds weight and an attractive tropical flair that emerges with a bit of aeration." 02/22
98 Points, James Suckling: "Sliced-apple and lime with some aniseed and licorice. Iodine, too. Full-bodied with linear acidity and a fine tannin structure that goes on for minutes. 65% sauvignon blanc and 35% semillon. This is fantastic and so delicious now, but can age for a very long time. Drink or hold."
97 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: "One of the best Cos Blancs for years, this is a real return to form, a great white wine that has presence and impact. Fantastic balance of rich, textured stone fruit with a fresh finish. You'll find salinity, slate texture, jasmine flowers and white pepper spice. It was a warmer year overall than 2017, and the white vines needed rain, which they got eventually but relatively late, meaning half the harvest was done on before the rain, and the other half after some freshening rainfall, which perhaps accounts for this unusual but rather beautiful marrying of the two styles. Concentrated, powerful, balanced and complex. Love it." 5/20
