Tasting: St. Emilion Grand Cru & Premier Grand Cru Classe

Lush chocolaty nose, sensuous dark fruits and a touch of liquorice. Broad, quite imposing, concentrated black fruits, backed by fine-grained tannins. It’s a bit too chocolaty from the oak, but it has grip and persistence and doesn’t lack acidity. Sexy stuff.

Tasting: St. Emilion Grand Cru & Premier Grand Cru Classe

Herbal, red fruit aroma and flavour. Touch of green on the nose. Herbaceous palate combined with zesty red fruit.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: St. Emilion Grand Cru & Premier Grand Cru Classe

Richly concentrated Merlot nose, all autumnal black fruits and spice. Exuberantly rich on the palate, but the tannins are still a bit raw and there is a touch of green there, but very good fruit and good structure for the long term.
