[Add to shopping basket] Cos d'Estournel Blanc Dry Whites £485 £400 - £700 - - - 94-95 90-92 88
Hide the tasting notes

This is the best Cos blanc ever, with lots of sliced grapefruit, pears and hints of fennel and aniseed. Full body with bright acidity and fruit. Oyster shell and salt on the finish. Excellent. 76% sauvignon blanc and 24% sémillon.

Score: 94 - 95 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The Château Cos d'Estournel Blanc, a blend of 76% Sauvignon Blanc and 24% Semillon with just 7% new oak, has a simple citrus peel and grapefruit bouquet. The palate is well balanced with fine tension and acidity. This is one of the best white Cos d'Estournel that I have tasted in terms of freshness and vitality. Perhaps one of the best white from the estate?

Score: 90 - 92 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Pale lemon-yellow, floral and lifted fruit, fine precision, length and a touch of minerality on the finish.

Score: 88 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2015-2018

2013 Cos d'Estournel Cos D'estournel Blanc The 2013 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is quire pretty and silky on the palate, with lovely energy and length. Grapefruit, crushed rocks and jasmine inform the tense, chiseled finish. Today, the Blanc is a little bit raw and in need of further aging, but it offers solid potential. The Blanc emerges from a property located 20 miles north of Cos itself that also supplies the fruit for the Goulée. (87-89+ Points)

Sweet, generous, juicy fruit. Lots of smoky character too. Rounded, supple but with fine tannic definition on the finish. Good, ageworthy potential.

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2028

A lovely nose of actual richness here. Rich middle, fresh and well balanced. Nicely done.

Score: 89 - 91 Albany Vintners

Good spice, light berry and mineral character in this wine. Medium body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Nicely done here for the vintage.

Score: 87 - 88 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

I tasted two samples of this wine. Firstly at a negoçiant, it had a surprisingly perfumed bouquet with simple but charming strawberry and raspberry fruit laced with cedar and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well judged acidity and an impressive sense of harmony and composure on the finish. This is a successful wine from the estate for the vintage - one of its most pleasant surprises. Secondly at the Union de Grand Cru, it did not flow as much as the previous sample and seemed a little harder. My score is equidistant between my evaluations.

Score: 87 - 89 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Fine deep colour, good Cabernet and Merlot fruit, good ripenss and nice finish, good wine.

Score: 88 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2026

Dark stone fruits, smoke, tobacco and new leather are some of the notes that emerge from the 2013 Cos Labory. The 2013 possesses good depth and immediacy, but the tannins are a bit rough around the edges at this stage. Overall, this is a solid showing.

Citrus peel, ginger and sweet spice, and a mid palate with great power. Just enough acidity. Lovely waxy feel, and an attractive mushroom note. (16.5)

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2015-2024

Intense barley sugar nose with slightly burnt sugar character. Plenty of richness in the middle but nicely balanced with a mouthwatering finish.

Score: 93 - 95 Albany Vintners

Extremely sleek and balanced with dried-apple, pear, honey and caramel character. Full body with integrated fruit, acid and sweetness. Lively and balanced.

Score: 90 - 91 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The 2013 Coutet has one of the most complex aromatics you will find this year - a smorgasbord of citrus fruit, lime zest, orange blossom and white peach that is beautifully interwoven with compelling mineralite. The palate is extremely well-balanced, very intense and linear right from the start, with wonderful tension toward the finish that exhibits just a hint of spice. In other words, this is everything you expect from a great Coutet.

Score: 93 - 95 Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Sweet and luscious with wonderful floral notes and intense flavours that range from dried tropical fruits to sweet spices. Fairly long finish.

Score: 91 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2020-2028

Powerful, with intense apricot, tangerine and pineapple notes forming the core, all wrapped with toasted almond, shortbread and sweetened butter notes. Has loads in reserve, with serious cut still to fully show itself.

[Add to shopping basket] Cruzelles Recommended Lalande de Pomerol £150 £120 - £160 Low Stock 87-88 17 88-90 86-87 90-92 86
Hide the tasting notes

Delicious wine from proprietor Denis Durantou, who is better known as the magician behind the great Pomerols of L-Eglise Clinet. This relatively nearby vineyard in Lalande has turned out a nice, ripe, rich, medium-bodied, opulent style of wine with lovely mulberry and black cherry fruit, as well as hints of new saddle leather and spice. It is medium-bodied, easygoing and doesn-t have the substance or power to last more than 4 or 5 years, but so what? Drink it up.

Score: 87 - 88 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate Maturity: 2014-2019

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. Vibrant perfume, black cherry, wood smoke that dominates the finish. Modern, sleek, juicy. I find this really attractive, though the oak is teetering on being overdone.

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2016-2023

Consistently impressive Lalande de Pomerol from Denis Durantou, just a stone's throw from his celebrated Eglise Clinet. Aromatic and fresh with nice perfume and pure black cherry notes. Firm fruit in the middle with more toasty spice and tannin coming through on the finish.

Score: 88 - 90 Albany Vintners

This is silky-textured and juicy with nice fruit but a little fluid. Round and delicious.

Score: 86 - 87 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The Les Cruzelles was picked from 26 September until 2 October, the same as La Chenade, and is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The nose is so pure, it almost reminds me of a top quality New World Pinot Noir. Blueberry and cassis to the fore! The palate is medium-bodied with firmer and more present tannins than the La Chenade, rendering this more masculine and probably with more longevity. It exerts a gentle grip towards the saline finish that feels natural and refined. Very fine. Tasted April 2014.

Score: 90 - 92 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Rarely fails. Attractive crushed red berry nose. Good depth of fruit. Long, fresh and satisfying.

Score: 86 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2023

Features a slightly firm sandalwood frame around a core of gentle damson plum and lightly steeped cherry fruit. The sandalwood edge pinches the finish slightly.

Score: 84 - 87 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to shopping basket] Dame de Montrose (2nd wine of Montrose) St Estephe £210 £170 - £240 - - - 86-87 85-87 88
Hide the tasting notes

Fresh, fruity red with hints of spice and currant character. Medium body with light tannins and a crisp finish. Pleasant second wine from Montrose.

Score: 86 - 87 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The second wine is a blend of 69% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Cabernet Franc. It has a surprisingly precocious nose because of the slightly higher percentage of Merlot. The oak is a little obvious at the moment. The palate is ripe on the entry, a little chewy perhaps with a firm grip, a solid La Dame de Montrose that feels just a little pushed towards the finish at the moment.

Score: 85 - 87 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Lovely cassis nose, smooth and almost silky fruit, lots of charm.

Score: 88 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2016-2024

Dark red cherry, plum, graphite, gravel, smoke and cured meats all take shape in the 2013 La Dame de Montrose. Deceptively medium in body, this tightly-wound, mineral-driven red offers plenty of potential, although it will need time in bottle to soften some of the contours. A distinctly savory, floral minerally finish rounds things out. There is a lot to like here, including the wine's considerable early appeal and relatively delicate personality. This is a terrific second wine. Tasted twice.
