Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Smoky leathery nose, somewhat evolved for such a young wine. Broad, rounded, and juicy, accessible for a young St. Estephe, but there’s ample concentration and acidity to give the wine backbone, and the tannins are polished. Quite good length.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Bright nose and palate, firm fruit, summerfruit compte, quite dark, little oak.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Quite forward and quite fragrant fruit, good natural ripeness and nice balance and length, not the most robust of St Estephes, but a wine with good open fruit and quite a bit of charm.
