Story

Story

Located in the northern reaches of the Médoc, where breezes regulate temperatures during hot spells and allow fruit to maintain freshness, the vineyard is particularly adapted to growing Merlot grapes. In perfect harmony with the estate’s terroir, Merlot is key in creating a smooth, supple, seductive wine that is fruity yet pure.

Goulée is a 3rd wine from famed Chateau Cos D’Estournel.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The bounty and grace of nature. Goulée by Cos d’Estournel brings to mind a light sea breeze, refreshing eucalyptus and the tantalizing scents of juicy, ripe berries and rich cacao beans… Evoking an invigorating afternoon spent on the water with friends or a delicious meal in an oceanfront bistro softly lit by the glowing rays of the sun, Goulée by Cos d’Estournel is decidedly untamed, a bold and expressive wine.

James Suckling – 92 points

2 Feb, 2018 – Aromas of sweet tobacco, plums and cherries follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and bright finish. Juicy and flavorful. Drink in 2020.

Decanter – 89 points

Fresh ripe fruit; supple and more approachable than in the past. Drinking Window 2018 – 2025


Wine Enthusiast – 87 points
This wine is rich, with superripe tannins and a barnyard character. It has structure but it mainly focuses on fruit and acidity. Made by the team at Cos d’Estournel, the wine has a rich structure and will be ready to drink soon, from 2019.
