Chateau Cos d'Estournel 'Les Pagodes de Cos' Blanc 2020 95pts
95 Points James Suckling
This is a really pretty second wine, showing a very contrastive palate of dried lemons and mangos with zingy acidity. Full-bodied and layered with a vivid finish. 90% sauvignon blanc and 10% semillon.
93 Points Decanter
A strong buy signal from me in this vintage, far less serious and intellectual than the main estate white, this is perky and delicious and easy to drink. Full of creamy apricot and white peach, accented by white flowers and citrus peel. Reminds me of Les Hauts de Smith in terms of striking the right balance between exuberance and grip, and being extremely moreish. 3.15pH. Harvest began August 31, through to 10 September.
91 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Cos d'Estournel's 2020 Pagodes de Cos Blanc is composed of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon, with an alcohol of 14.2% and a pH of 3.11. 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 opens with compelling scents of green guava, yellow apple and pear tart, followed by hints of shaved almonds, nutmeg and white pepper with a hint of crushed rocks. The medium-bodied palate is clean and refreshing with bags of apple and pear-inspired flavors and a spicy kick to the finish.
90 Points Wine Spectator
Presents peach, green almond and yellow plum notes that give this a fun, off-beat profile, with a honeysuckle flourish on the finish. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.
