Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Slightly stewed, meaty nose, not exactly fresh. Suave, quite concentrated, fair acidity, better than the nose, with some sweetness of fruit – but it lacks some personality and flair, and the tannins are both modest and a touch dry. Medium length.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Simple nose with a rounded soft forward palate for pauillac, creamy cedar wood and dark plum fruit, much better on palate that nose but a little light. Creamy long finish, good to drink now.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Meaty blackcurrant fruit on the nose, good fresh fruit on the palate and oak and tannins blended in, quite a robust wine and quite good for the mid term.
