Producer:

 

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Rich smoky nose, lush and oaky. Fairly rich, suave, juicy, has some intensity and lift, which gives finesse. Not very complex but has purity and drive. Quite good length and an oaky finish that may be excessive to Bordeaux purists.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Ripe and forward nose, bramble and damson fruit, palate quite cherry stone and blackberry, herbal and fresh, sold tannins.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Quite floral and fragrant nose with black fruits dominant, quite striking fruit on the palate, still quite green and firm, but there is depth and elegance there to come out, an understated yet well-made Listrac.
