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.

Wine Enthusiast

Hugely ripe and rich, this wine hints at tropical fruit while staying in crisper citrus realms. Great concentration and wonderful acidity are given roundness and spice from the wood aging.

The flagship, the 2019 Château Cos D'Estournel Blanc is a racier white offering lots of beautiful citrus, white flowers, and a salty, mineral-like quality. With beautiful concentration and terrific balance as well as great acidity, it's another fabulous white from this team, if not surpassing the 2018.

This is incredibly long and refined with a compact structure and beautiful tension. It goes on and on. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and energetic. Lovely bitterness and brightness. Lemons, stones and limes. Flint, too. The grapes were harvested at three different moments. It’s beautifully constructed.
