Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Surprisingly porty nose. Broad, rounded, a bit flabby and heavy, sits on the floor and won’t get up, drab tannins, and hard to see any future for this. Medium length.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Attractive classic Medoc nose, gravel and pencil shavings with blackcurrant and cedarwood, ripe sweet graphite cassis core, round palate, good balance of chalky tannins and ripe fruit, good length.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Quite rich berry fruit where Merlot seems to dominate, good blackberry jam flavours on the palate, ripe and robust and some elegance to come but still a little on the over-ripe side, lacking a little clarity but will show well mid term.
