Stephen Brook

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

Robust, black cherry and clove nose. Plump, juicy and full-bodied, this has good depth of fruit. Suave tannins give structure, though high alcohol slightly mars the finish, which also shows some dryness. Sound but rather charmless.

James Lawther MW

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

Expressive, aromatic nose. Plush and full on the palate. Rich, full and broad. Powerful tannic frame. Tight and dry on the finish. Alcohol shows. Big, assertive wine.

Steven Spurrier

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

Richly extracted, chocolaty and coffee bean nose. Quite chunky, even massively expressed fruit, some good fragrance from Cabernet Franc, but overall a bit on the sweet side.
