Chateau Cos d'Estournel 2016 Goulee Blanc, Bordeaux, France

Available:  Only 5 left in stock $41.99
Size: 750.00ml
Less than 1000 cases are produced annually of Cos d'Estournel's white wine which is made from grapes grown in the Goulée vineyard in the Northern Medoc. 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. Fermented and aged in neutral oak, with some lees stirring, but no malolactic fermentation. A generous, lively wine, it brings to mind a slice of bread spread thickly with quince jam, a sun-drenched stall of autumn fruit or sudden recollections of the sweetest summer moments. Critically Acclaimed: “A layered and deep white with beautiful fruit giving mango, sliced-lemon and green-pineapple character. Full-bodied and so flavorful. Love the phenolic balance. One of the best dry whites of the vintage.” – James Suckling (97 Points) “One of the finest whites from this estate is the 2016 Cos d'Estournel Blanc, which is 75% Sémillon and 25% Sauvignon brought up all in oak, 10% new. It boasts a vivid gold color as well as intense notes of white grapefruit, crushed rocks, flower oil, and a kiss of brioche. Medium-bodied, rich, beautifully textured and concentrated, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 10-15 years. 2021 - 2036.” – Jeb Dunnuck (95 Points)
