A pretty and lively white with sliced-lemon, lime and honey character. Full body, bright acidity and a long finish. Tight and holding back its true excellence. Opulent. Three quarters are sauvingon blanc and one quarter is sémllion. Better in 2017.
Offers a light waxy feel, with lemon curd and macadamia nut notes, all offset by racy tarragon and kiwifruit flavors. A stony echo courses through the finish. Drink now through 2015.
This excellent project of Cos d’Estournel’s proprietor, Michel Reybier, awards the consumer with a delicious, up-front, seductive and sexy style of wine (60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot) with plenty of plum, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, light tannin, medium body and excellent concentration and purity. This is what consumers should be flocking to buy more of, and what more Bordeaux estates should be producing. Kudos to Reybier and the staff at Cos d’Estournel. A sleeper of the vintage.
The wine looks yellow colored. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like asparagus, toast and vanilla. It tastes like oak, asparagus, diacetyl (butter) and lemon. The body is medium. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.~
