Crus bourgeois 2010: panel tasting results
Château Labat, Haut-Médoc
Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge's scores: Steven Brook 17.5 Ronan Sayburn MS 17 Steven Spurrier 17.5
Dark, dense nose of coffee, chocolate, graphite, cedar and heady black fruits. Classy, fresh and full-bodied, crammed with blackcurrant fruit. Spice and zest thanks to underlying acidity, but enough grip and structure to keep the wine going.
