Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Lush toasty nose, black cherries and blackcurrants, but decidedly oaky. Fairly rich, sleek, moderately concentrated but balanced, though there isn’t much light and shade here. Firm oak tannins mark the finish. Pleasant but run of the mill.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Cassis fruit and heavy oak, almost menthol, smoky and full, fine fish and good length.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Deep black-red, fine concentrated black fruits nose, very good concentration on the palate, quite chunky now, but has the depth of fruit to show well and needs to absorb the tannins and acidity as it is still a little raw
