Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Firm oaky blackberry nose. Rich, solid, concentrated, a dense weighty style with more power than finesse. There’s pungency and drive here, so it’s not clumsy or overwrought and should have good ageing potential. Long.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

A touch of VA on nose, forward and cherry raspberry fruit, harsh unbalanced palate and volatile.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Black-red, young rim, massive concentration, both leathery and very extracted, robust, animally fruit, lots of flavour and lots of grip, but the oak and tannins are to the fore, and although natural richness is there, the wine is over-balanced by power, but will no doubt impress as it matures.
