COS D'ESTOURNEL

2014 Blanc Château Cos d'Estournel

Colour White
Origin France, Bordeaux
ABV 13%

Charming MD Aymeric de Gironde politely said this is the best white they have ever made here - and it is hard to argue. Usually harvested 3 weeks ahead of the red grapes - they actually picked the grapes just 2 days before the reds this year. The extra time on the vines has just built the weight of the wine - intense and with a lovely feel - there is huge minerality and a lovely chalky feel - but great, bright acidity like in 2012 - but with the feel of 2010 - super combination. 65% Sauvignon, 35% Semillon. Rating: 94 L&S (Apr 2015)

The Château Cos d'Estournel Blanc 2014 is a blend of 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 34% Sémillon that was picked between 22 September and 9 October at 29.3 hectoliters per hectare. It is matured in around 15% new wood. It has a clean and fresh, quite "minimalist" bouquet with the Granny Smith apples and granitic scents, but all low-key compared to previous vintages. The palate is fresh on the entry, the Sauvignon Blanc delivering fresh green apple and nectarine notes, a citric thread of acidity and plenty of energy towards the saline finish. It is a delightful Cos d'Estournel Blanc that should drink immediately from bottle, yet should mature for several years if you so wish.

Very good blend of 66% Sauvignon and 30% Semillon. Strikingly good - the best Blanc de Cos so far. (Highly Recommended St-Estèphe, Decanter.) Drinking range: 2016 - 2022 Rating: 90+ Steven Spurrier(Apr 2015)

Floral, blossomy nose. Bright fresh fruit and sufficient lime-juice pungency on the palate. Racy and floral. Good weight. Emphatic. Neat. A little alcohol on the end. Drinking range: 2019 - 2027 Rating: 17- Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Apr 2015)
