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.

Bottled in April 2016, the 2016 Goulee by Cos d'Estournel has a vivid, fresh, lively bouquet of black fruit infused with bell pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and plenty of tarry black fruit laced with tobacco. I appreciate the freshness and classicism of this Goulee, which is more cohesive and shows a little more substance than previous vintages. Very fine.

Full of ripe fruit that gives an almost opulent character, this powerful wine is packed with tannins. A touch of dark chocolate contrasts with the black-currant fruits and acidity. The wine will develop relatively quickly and be ready to drink from 2021.

The 2016 Goulée by Cos d'Estournel is made up of 77% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. It has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with youthful notes of crushed red and black plums, cherries and blackberries with touches of chocolate mint and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of juicy red and black fruits, framed by soft tannins and finishing with a minty lift.

The 2016 Goulée by Cos d'Estournel is unquestionably the more forward, front-end loaded release. It has attractive tobacco and herbal notes as well as plenty of dark fruits, medium body, a supple, rounded texture, and a good finish. It's a satisfying, balanced, high-quality wine from a great estate.
