Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Dense but wild black fruits nose, slightly gamey and savoury, but certainly has personality. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated, with hefty but ripe tannins. Has a marked torrefied character from the oak, but this too adds character. This doesn’t play safe and has energy and punch. Good length.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Fine nose, smart oak integration, polished oak, creamy and toffee in character, pencil shavings and graphite – classic nose, elegant tannins and body, bright fruit, well balanced with a harmonious finish.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Black-red, purple rim, concentrated but lifted fruit, quite fragrant and quite restrained, showing true Medoc elegance and a touch of violets on the berry fruit, good precision and very good length, a classy wine with lots of modern fruit.
