Tasting Notes

Bold and smoky on the nose, the orchard fruit at the core here is laden with wood spice. Concentrated and impressive on the palate, there is a real tang to the fruit edge that keeps everything fresh. Pineapple, sweet citrus and baking spices round out the finish.

Thomas Parker MW, Farr Vintners, April 2023

Pretty and rich white peach, pear and apple aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with plenty of fruit and bright acidity. Chalky and stony. Happy to watch.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2023

A blend of 74% Sauvignon Blanc and 26% Semillon, the 2022 Cos d'Estournel Blanc powers out of the glass with intense notes of pink grapefruit, green guava, passionfruit, and lime blossoms, followed by hints of sea spray and wet pebbles. The medium-bodied palate shimmers with tropical fruit and minerally flavors, supported by bright acidity and finishing very long and zesty. pH 3.21.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Independent, May 2023

Grippy acidity keeps up momentum and contrasts beautifully with the ripe fleshy stone fruit through the mid palate. Waves of white pear, citrus, peach, nectarine pit, great quality here, Great stuff, more closed right now that Pagodes as you would expect, but this is steely, flinty and moreish.
