Chateau Cos d'Estournel Blanc 2019

Product description

Chateau Cos d'Estournel is a Grand Cru vineyard located in St. Estephe. Its oriental facade is adorned with three pagoda turrets, all cast in soft golden sandstone. Chateau Cos d'Estournel today covers 170 acres separated from Chateau Lafite, along the southern edge, by the stream between St. Estephe and Pauillac.

Rich and complex, this vintage delivers aromas of jasmine and grapefruit that are a lovely counterpoint to its distinctive briny character. A finely structured, sophisticated wine, Cos d'Estournel Blanc has exceptional cellaring potential.

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 it can age for a long time.

97 Points - Decanter

One of the best Cos Blancs for years, this is a real return to form, a great white wine with 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 is concentrated, powerful, balanced and complex. Love it.

The 2019 Chateau Cos D'Estournel Blanc's flagship is racier white, offering lots of beautiful citruses, white flowers, and a salty, mineral-like quality. With lovely concentration, terrific balance, and great acidity, it's another fabulous white from this team.

93 Points - Wine Spectator

Showcases both plump and racy aspects, with verbena and tarragon notes infusing a core of white peach, star fruit and jicama. The long finish has nice clarity.

92+ Points - Wine Enthusiast

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

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

From holdings in the north of the Medoc and incorporating an increasing percentage of Sémillon, the 2019 Cos d'Estournel Blanc offers up aromas of pear, confit citrus, lemon grass and pastry cream, followed by a full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate that's rich and enveloping, with lively acids and a long, saline finish.
