Less than 1,000 cases are produced annually of Cos d'Estournel's white wine which is made from grapes grown in the Goulée vineyard in the Northern Médoc. The vineyard is planted with 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon. First produced in 2005 and now there is also a second wine - Pagodes de Cos Blanc.
The 2022 is 74% Sauvignon Blanc, 26% Semillon.
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.
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.
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.
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.
