Robert Parker 88 points - "The 2015 Goulée is a blend of 77% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc. It was bottled in April 2018. The nose is almost identical to my impressions during en primeur: plenty of black fruit here, hints of bell pepper and tobacco tucked in just underneath. It is not complex, perhaps even a little rustic, but in a positive sense of the word. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannin. This feels lightly peppered in the mouth with that sprinkling of powdered dark chocolate that I remarked upon from barrel, nicely structured with plenty of freshness on the finish. There is no crime in broaching this young because as I predicted, it is fresh and approachable, but should offer a decade's worth of drinking pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2018 - 2027."
