Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Lean oaky cherry nose. Light, simple, anodyne, no rough edges and well groomed but lacks excitement and personality. Medium length.

Ronan Sayburn MS

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Youthful, earthy almost tar like aromas, concentrated. Dark fruit with coffee and chocolate character, little smoky. Big tannins and acidity. Will age well.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Crus Bourgeois 2010

Deep fresh red, young rim, nicely expressed red and black fruits, still quite reserved but all in balance and not too rich nor too extracted, good fruit and good elegant structure, quite forward style.
