Jane Anson: 95/100
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 Sémillon). Harvest September 5 to 15. 10ha of white for the Estournel wines, 18 years on from its first vintage in 2005.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Independent: 93-95/100
The 2023 Cos d'Estournel Blanc jumps from the glass with enthusiastic notes of juicy peaches, green guava, passion fruit, and fresh pineapple followed by hints of lime blossom and shaved ginger. The light-bodied palate has a laser-precise backbone of racy acidity cutting through the intense tropical and citrus fruit layers, finishing long and mineral-laced. The blend is 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, with pH 3.14.
