St-Emilion 1GCC & GCC 2010: panel tasting results

1 4.5 5
These structured, ageworthy wines pleased our judges on the whole, but they criticised the high oak,
extraction and alcohols in many examples, which masked their vineyard character. Nevertheless, two wines were awarded Outstanding and 17 wines Highly Recommended - see all 19 St Emilion 2010s here...

Quite rich and spicy nose. Plump, full-bodied, fleshy and rounded, this has depth and power. It’s a bit overbearing, but time should bring more harmony as the fruit quality is excellent.
