Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château Cos d'Estournel, Blanc, 2ème Cru Classé, St Estèphe, 2022
Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Grippy acidity keeps up momentum and contrasts beautifully with the ripe fleshy stone fruit through the mid palate. Waves of white pear, citrus, peach, nectarine pit, great quality here, Great stuff, more closed right now that Pagodes as you would expect, but this is steely, flinty and moreish.

A blend of 74% Sauvignon Blanc and 26% Semillon, the 2022 Cos d'Estournel Blanc powers out of the glass with intense notes of pink grapefruit, green guava, passionfruit, and lime blossoms, followed by hints of sea spray and wet pebbles. The medium-bodied palate shimmers with tropical fruit and minerally flavors, supported by bright acidity and finishing very long and zesty. pH 3.21.

The 2022 Cos d'Estournel Blanc, a blend of 74% Sauvignon Blanc and 26% Semillon, matured entirely in one to three-year-old barrels. This has a more harmonious bouquet than the Pagodes Blanc, with fine depth and freshness. The palate is well-balanced with fine acidity. The 2022 is bright with lime and orange zest notes, gently building toward a lightly spiced and pleasing finish. This joyful Cos d'Estournel Blanc should provide at least a decade's drinking pleasure.

Château Cos d'Estournel

Château Cos d'Estournel

Situated at the south of St Estephe, the vineyards boarder those of Chateau Lafite in Pauillac. The terroir is excellent and there has always been the potential to produce exceptional wines; this is recognised by its 2nd growth classification in 1855. The chateau’s unique pagodas are a legacy of Gaspard Lacoste de Maniban, Marquis d’Estournel, the “Maharajah of Saint Estèphe”, who bought the land in 1791 and spent his life travelling and promoting his wine. In 2000 Michel Reybier purchased Cos and construction of a vat room entirely based on the laws of gravity (the first of its type in Bordeaux). The winemaking process, from harvest reception to bottling, takes place without pumping. Grape berries, their juices and the resulting wines are handled as gently as possible.

Following the departure of Jean-Guillaume Prats, Aymeric de Gironde, formally of Pichon Longueville was appointed as General Manager. He instigated a change in philosophy, with the emphasis on producing wines with freshness, elegance and precision. He too has moved on to pastures new, but Michel Reybier and his Technical Director, Dominique Arangoits have continued to refine and some would say perfect this style. Cos d’Estournel is enjoying a resurgence and possibly the greatest period in its long and distinguished history.
