Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Oaky cassis nose, refined and discreet. Medium-bodied but very concentrated and sleek. Tightly wound and not that expressive now, but it has good depth of fruit, and plenty of grip derived from ripe tannins. Has elegance rather than power.

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Slightly green, grassy notes on the nose. Short of ripeness on the palate, red fruit rather than black, rather disappointing at this stage. Tannins a bit harsh and acidity a little out of kilter with the fruit.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Deep and quite elegant Cabernet cassis fruit. Already a certain maturity both on colour and palate, good fruit, a little stewed and could have more lift for this vintage, but the depth is good.
