Media Reviews

Jane Anson

Green gold, well balanced, slate and pummice stone, rises through the palate from the first sip, lemongrass and lime, showing structure, depth, purity and sculpted citrus and sage. Excellent concentrated flavours, steely and mouthwatering, gets the balance exactly right between steel and flesh. 7% new oak (with barrels used only for the Semillon). Harvest September 5 to 15. 10ha of white for the Estournel wines, 18 years on from its first vintage in 2005. 95 points

Yohan Castaing

A delicately, exotic bouquet of ripe orchard fruits, white fruits, lemongrass and spring flowers preface the 2023 Cos d`Estournel Blanc, a fleshy, ample and satiny wine that’s fresh and elegant with bright acids and a slightly lactic and mouthwatering finish. It’s a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. 90-92 points

Antonio Galloni

The 2023 Cos d`Estournel Blanc is quite powerful and not especially aromatic today. At this stage, it is mostly the wine`s body that makes an impression. The 2023 has good depth, but it is clearly not expressive today. It will be interesting to see what time brings. 91-93 points

Neil Martin

The 2023 Cos d`Estournel Blanc, a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, offers slightly more tropical notes on the nose than Les Pagodes, with a touch more depth–hints of orange blossom and honeysuckle. The palate is well balanced with tangerine and lime, fine acidity, notable focus and a bright and tensile finish. This is another delicious white. It will be difficult to resist in its youth. 92-94 points
