Stephen Brook

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

Discreetly oaky nose, with ample black cherry fruit. Fairly rich, supple, full-bodied and concentrated, but not to excess. Yet it seems one-dimensional, with little nuance or finesse. Moderate length, with diffuse tannins on the finish.

James Lawther MW

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

Herbal, red fruit nose. Palate lively and supple but a touch green. Pronounced acidity and tannins dry on the finish.

Steven Spurrier

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

Concentrated blackberry Merlot fruit. Still a little greenness on mid-palate and on the finish. Quite good, but lacks real complexity and length.
