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

1 4.55 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...

Very well expressed nose with floral and fragrant fruit, and a nice lift from the Cabernet Franc. Refreshing, almost crunchy, summer fruits, refreshing acidity and fine tannins. This is a very elegant wine that has finesse.
