Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Spicy oaky nose, blackberries, blackcurrants. Medium-bodied, sleek, not especially concentrated, but graceful and lively and shows some finesse. The oak is well integrated, and there’s considerable freshness on the finish. Quite good length

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Nose of liquorice and cedar wood, blackcurrant and summer fruits, some earthy graphite also, full palate, coffee and chocolate hints.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Good deep colour, some maturity on rim, good sweet, slightly leathery fruit on the nose and quite lifted berry fruits on the palate, but seems quite forward and a bit “stewed”, lack a bit of clarity.
