Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Powerful, spicy black fruits nose, with a good deal of oak and a slight raisiny character. Rich, broad, fleshy, succulent, and backed by hefty tannins. It’s quite extracted and chocolaty, and a bit over the top. Quite good length, chewy finish.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Nose quite closed, palate tight and simple.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Very expressive nose of black fruits, good concentration without over-extraction, the richness continues on the palate with a nice freshness, but this is a big wine, richer on the palate than expected from the nose, will be quite impressive if never masses of finesse.
