Stephen Brook

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Rich blackberry and dill nose, quite toasty. Medium-bodied but sleek and stylish, with firm underlying tannins and good concentration. A lighter style, but has Margaux typicity and elegance, though without any great depth of fruit. Quite long.

Alun Griffiths

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Nose pretty but slightly lightweight.The lack of body continues on the palate and there is no real substance. Short finish. Tannins subdued and acidity in balance but nothing special.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Fine, fragrant Margaux nose, taffeta elegance of texture, great purity of expression, both black and red fruits. Shows less vigour than most but is expressively Margaux, with lifted texture and elegance which will mature well.
