Chateau Cos d'Estournel Blanc Bordeaux 2020 99pts
A super white with dense mango, lemon and lime, as well as some clove and nutmeg. Full-bodied, really complete and long. Sensational. So much potential here. 66% sauvignon blanc and 34% semillon.

The 2020 Chateau Cos D'Estournel Blanc, a blend of 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 34% Semillon, brings another level of density as well as complexity. Honeyed pineapple, melon, crushed stone, and spicy, savory herbs notes all define the aromatics, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a beautifully layered, elegant mouthfeel and a great finish. It's a gem of a white and ranks with the crème de la creme of the vintage. It should keep for 10-15 years. Best After 2023.
95 Points Wine Advocate
The 2020 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is composed of 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 34% Semillon, with an alcohol of 14% and a pH of 3.15. The harvest took place August 31–September 10 with a yield of 24 hectoliters per hectare. It is aging in French oak barrels, 8% new. It bursts from the glass with vibrant notes of lime blossoms, fresh grapefruit and white peaches, plus hints of ripe pears and lemongrass with wafts of chalk dust and wet pebbles. The medium-bodied palate is charged with intense citrus and stony flavors, supported by a seriously racy line of acidity, finishing long and minerally.
95 Points Decanter
Touch of reduction on the nose, gunsmoke and flint, this is gastronomic and serious, the fint and citrus flavours are hidden at first. A brilliant one-two punch with the first and second wines in the Cos stable this year.
Cos d'Estournel Blanc are carefully hand-harvested and sorted before undergoing fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels, with a portion of new oak, for several months to add complexity and texture.
Tasting Notes: A pale yellow color hue with aromas of citrus fruits, white flowers, and tropical notes. On the palate, the wine is fresh and vibrant, with flavors of grapefruit, lemon, and melon, along with a crisp acidity and a long, zesty finish. It is anticipated to be a complex and well-balanced white wine with the potential to age gracefully.
