Chateau Balac, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, 2010



Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Timid cherry nose. Medium-bodied, supple, not much concentration, sound but routine, with firm tannins and a light chocolaty tone. Overall it lacks zest and personality. Medium length.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Earthy and stalky nose, little unpleasant, harsh bitter palate, green flavours.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Fine dense red, purple rim, lovely fragrant black berry fruit, already shows the Medoc elegance, still a bit raw on the palate, a touch green and will need time to open up, but good solid wine and good future once the greeness softens.
