Goulée. A name that has a certain ring to it, a music to the ear. Goulée was once an island surrounded by the waters of the Gironde Estuary, and reconnected to the mainland following major drainage works carried out by the Dutch in the Médoc starting in the sixteenth century.
A land of audacity and humility, mysterious and wild, Goulée is proof that wine had long been produced on-site despite harsh elements to reveal an unsuspected terroir. Goulée’s vineyard has been part of Cos d’Estournel estate for more than fifteen years. It is one of the last vineyards situated along the Gironde Estuary. A land shaped by sea breeze and tides.
Goulée’s terroir is composed of a gravelly terrace and clay and limestone slopes. It is uniquely situated so as to benefit from constant ventilation from the Gironde and an ongoing supply of cool air thanks to nearby marshland.
Michel Reybier and the Cos d’Estournel team are delighted to announce that Goulée by Cos d’Estournel 2017 is now available for purchase.
