TASTING NOTES

"A layered and deep white with beautiful fruit giving mango, sliced-lemon and green-pineapple character. Full-bodied and so flavorful. Love the phenolic balance. One of the best dry whites of the vintage." JamesSuckling.com

"Pale gold; subtly fresh, dense and persistent, ripe grapefruit Sauvignon Blanc to smell; mediumfull wine, rich, fresh-to-vital in acidity; dry but juicy, succulent, appetizing, long to taste, long to finish, very gratifying and complete; flesh, freshness, aromatic complexity, and finishing with lovely length. The quality level of a fine premier cru white Burgundy. Barrel-fermented, with a brief élevage, and only 7% new wood." Michael Schuster, The World of Fine Wine

"The 2016 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon that was picked between 12 September and 10 October, matured in a very modest 7% new oak. It has a fragrant bouquet with lemon curd, lime flower and just a hint of grilled almond. The palate is very well balanced with fine mineralité on the entry. Fine tension here, although I would like to see it develop more persistence on the finish, which just cuts away a little swiftly at present." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #230

"Pale greenish straw. Quite a sherbet character on the nose. Unusual tension." JancisRobinson.com. 6 April 2017
