The 2015 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is brisk and nicely focused throughout. This is a beautiful, classy wine endowed with lovely energy and overall tension. In this vintage, the emphasis seems to have been on maintaining freshness, which comes through in the wine's vivacity. Green orchard fruit, sage and mint add the closing shades of nuance.

The 2015 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon, picked between 14 and 29 September at a low 29 hl/ha. It has a charming bouquet with lime flower, apricot blossom and just a touch of blood orange. There is a sprightliness to this wine. The palate is crisp and fresh with a fine bead of acidity, plenty of tension here and perhaps more precision than previous vintages that I have tasted since its debut. I like the flow of energy here. This is an excellent Cos d'Estournel Blanc that should age with style and panache. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2035

A dense and pretty white with sliced apple, pear and pineapple. Full body and very fresh. Tangy and bright. Lovely energy to this. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Smoky, almost reduced nose. Lots of life and transparency. Very much de nos jours! Already broachable but clearly set for a long life with a light touch. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2017-2025

It’s a rare vintage when Cos’ white wine is better than its red, but that’s the case here. This was picked late, but comes from a cool site. Saline, zesty and delicately oaked, with a whiff of sea breeze and a waxy undertone. Complex, satisfying stuff. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2017-2022
