Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Intense, blackcurrant nose, with a gamey edge. Rich but has this meat extract character and aggressive acidity, lacks harmony and balance. A bit raw and not sure it will improve greatly with time. Quite long

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Cedar earthy nose, fresh blackcurrant and liquorice, solid palate with great fruit and grippy tannins, pencil shavings and gravel. Youthful and with great potential.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Nicely concentrated black currant fruit, a bit blackcurrant jam on the palate, good fruit but a bit jammy and easy for Pauillac and has a roughness that will stay.
