Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Hefty oaky black fruits nose, powerful rather than subtle. Rich, assertive and full-bodied, very concentrated, has heft and power but also plenty of spice and verve. Reserved though not closed, and needs more time to blossom. Good length.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Smoky nose, charcoal and dark aromas, coffee chocolate, mocha, good harmony on palate, nice length.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Black red, purple rim, masses of blackcurrant fruit, really good concentration and although quite sweet and rich is still quite lifted, perhaps over ripe, certainly a lot of ripeness is there , but also natural acidity and firm, even robust tannins, a wine that needs time to knit, but should be quite impressive.
