Located at the northern tip of the Médoc, the vineyard of Château La Goulée was abandoned in 2007 when Cos d'Estournel acquired it. The aim was to produce an intensely flavoursome, tasty and charming wine thanks to an almost (90%) pure Merlot grape variety.
The contract was perfectly fulfilled with this magnificent 2019, a real delicacy rated 92/100 by M. Galloni (Vinous).
Galloni (Vinous) : 86-88/100 « The 2020 Goulée by Cos d'Estournel is perfumed and silky in the glass. Cedar, sweet pipe tobacco and crushed flowers lend attractive aromatic presence. This is an especially gracious style that feels a bit light. »
Martin (Vinous) : 85-87/100 « The 2020 Goulée by Cos d’Estournel has a very earthy nose, bell pepper intermingling with black fruit, the former becoming quite pronounced with time. I would like a little more fruit to come through here. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins and quite herbaceous on the entry, showing some attenuation toward the finish. »
