Château St-Georges (Côte Pavie), GCC
Decanter average score: 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: Stephen Brook 17 James Lawther MW 16.5 Steven Spurrier 17.5
Smoky nose, with exuberant blackberry fruit. Lively and substantial on the palate with good vineyard expression from the fruit. A sumptuous style but not heavy-handed, and the finish is textured and long.
