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

1 4.6 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...

Discreet leafy nose, no fruit bomb, but has finesse. Medium-bodied – more elegance than power. It’s svelte, taut and elegant, with fine-grained tannins and a zesty, long finish. Finely balanced – this will grow as it matures.
