Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Curious nose, both ripe and blackcurranty and slightly green. Lean, taut, rather hard-edged though doesn’t lack fruit; it’s less green than the nose but the acidity remains sharp without giving the wine much length. I don’t see this developing well. Medium length.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Dense smoky oak nose, ripe and bright blackberry and raspberry, pencil shavings and cedar wood. Great nose. Palate firm and less exciting, a little short

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Fine black-red colour with young rim, slightly smoky autumn berry fruit on the nose, ripe and robust on the palate, natural concentration from ripe grapes, some florality, but fruit a bit thick, more earthy than elegant at the moment, but with a good mid-term future.
