A brilliant innovation by the proprietor Cos d’Estournel, Michel Reybier, this offering has been a delicious, fruit-forward, interesting Medoc in every vintage to date. The 2011 Goulee has triumphed over the vintage difficulties, resulting in a dark ruby-colored wine with lots of black cherry, black currant, licorice, spice and damp earth notes. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, the Goulée 2011 has a modest, tertiary bouquet with dried herbs and sous-bois more pronounced that in the 2010 or 2009. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins with a tapered, but crisp leafy finish. Fine. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

This wine shows ripe tannins and a chocolate, toasted oak and berry aftertaste. A little simple. jamessuckling.com

Very pure, almost sweet, with a creamy edge and gorgeous cherry pie, lightly toasted vanilla and creamed plum notes. Tasted non-blind. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot. Deep black cherry colour. Rich spicy dark fruit. Cedary and really taut, though the sample is pretty cold. Not much flesh but upright and elegant. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com
