About the wine
Second growth, Cos d'Estournel has a long and prestigious history dating as far back as 1811. Their wines are described as "rich, sensuous, age-worthy, concentrated, refined, powerful, elegant and tannic." Undoubtedly one of the best producers in the Medoc, Cos d'Estournel has been heralded by critics and wine connoisseurs from around the globe! Goulee is no different! Displaying the same depth and power seen in the primer bottling of the estate, this wine offers a world-class pedigree at an entry-level price!
The Estate is a marvel both inside and out. With Indian inspired architecture and a production facility, featuring no pumps, where wine is moved entirely by gravity Cos d'Estournel boasts a world-class facility, second to none. A lack of intervention allows the most authentic expression of fruit and terroir. In perfect harmony with the estate’s terroir and production practices, the merlot driven Goulee is a smooth, supple, seductive wine that is fruity yet pure.
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.
Deep, dark, and rich fruit, from plums to berries. Full-bodied, layered, dense, and very rich. Best after 2022. ~93JS
