Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2020 Goulée by Cos d'Estournel offers a nose of Mediterranean herbs-tinged black plums and blackberry scents, with wafts of damp soil and graphite. The medium-bodied palate is a little green and thin, finishing abruptly.

Michael Schuster

(90% M, 10% CS; 46hl/ha; 13.17% ABV; 20% new)
Very Merlot-floral and gently plummy to smell; medium-full, nice concentration, fleshy, fresh, delicately tannic, a really lovely balance; long and succulent and Merlot-juicy, with lovely length to follow. Great success, this will make a delicious drink from not long after bottling. Complete, a beauty, a real bon bon, and likely to be very good value, too. 2023–33+.

92-93

James Suckling

This is very classic with firm, racy tannins and dark, juicy fruit. Lots of chocolate and currants. Very balanced. 90% merlot and 10% cabernet sauvignon.

Jancis Robinson

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Cask sample.
Round, supple and easy drinking with plummy red fruit to the fore. Light tannic frame. Astonishing balance given the relatively high pH (3.94). (JL)

89-91

Jeff Leve

Medium-bodied, forward and fruity, the wine blends flowers, tobacco leaf and plums on the nose and palate. Soft, juicy and already a pleasure to drink, you can enjoy this on release and in a casual bistro or cafe with ease. 89-91
