Opulent, round and full-bodied, it achieved 14.7% natural alcohol and should drink well for 7-8 years.

Concentrated ripe, round berries, fresh cassis and bitter chocolate are found in the finish of this lush, styled wine from the team at Chateau Cos d'Estournel.

Bright and fruity, with raspberry and plums. Full, soft and velvety. Love the acidity.

The La Goulee is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot and it quite reticent on the nose at first but opening gradually with blackberry, cedar and black plum, struck through with a hint of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins, quite Margaux like and floral with a pretty but taut finish. This should mellow nicely by the time of bottling. Drink 2012-

Dark and winey, with lots of currant and red licorice fruit. Tangy and taut through the finish. Nicely focused. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot. From the same three vineyard blocks as always but Jean-Guillaume Prats admitted that it has taken his team some time to fully understand how they react to different weather conditions... 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot. From the same three vineyard blocks as always but Jean-Guillaume Prats admitted that it has taken his team some time to fully understand how they react to different weather conditions. Very deep crimson purple. Attractive freshness on the nose. Round at first though quite sculpted later on the palate. Clean and fresh with no hint of overripeness. And only the tiniest hint of green. Dry finish - very complete and nicely done. Brisk and clean.

The wine was launched by Cos d'Estournel in the 2003 vintage, produced from grapes grown on gravelly, rolling hillside vineyards along the Gironde River estuary, well north of St Estephe. Complex and evolved, the perfumed nose displays fresh spring flowers leading to intense black and blue fruit and followed by tar, fresh turned earth, and crushed pebbles. This modern styled wine offers plus concentration of blackberry and boysenberry, brambly and spicy. The alluring texture shows exceptional lushness for the vintage with integrated, supple tannins.
