The finest Goulee to date, the wine has an opaque purple color, a glorious nose of creme de cassis, blackberries, forest floor, and some subtle charcoal, and fabulous fruit on the attack, mid-palate and finish. The wine is opulent, even viscous, with unreal concentration and a full-bodied purity and texture. This wine simply over-delivers at every stage of the tasting experience. It is definitely a candidate to buy by the caseful and drink over the next decade or more. This is a major sleeper of the vintage.

Bright medium ruby. Aromas of black cherry, cassis and licorice. Dense, layered and sweet, with a lush texture and noteworthy concentration to the slightly high-toned flavors of blackberry, cassis and licorice pastille. Harmonious acidity energizes the mid-palate and extends the rising finish, which features firm but ripe tannins and a saline nuance. The best vintage yet for this top value made under the direction of Jean-Guillaume Prats and Michel Reybier, respectively the manager and owner of Cos d'Estournel.

Best ever from here. Wonderful aromas of currants and plums, with hints of jam. Full and super fine, with a lovely texture and a long flavorful and focused finish. Try in 2018.
