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...

Lightly savoury nose, but the black fruits still come through. Good natural tannins refresh the palate and there’s very good, lifted fruit, with fine texture and good length. A well-balanced, stylish, poised and elegant St-Emilion.
