Stephen Brook

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

Opulent, oaky nose, quite evolved. Rich, broad, juicy, and has some lift and brightness on the mid-palate. Concentrated and spicy, this has considerable vigour as well as a suave texture. Not much subtlety here, but robustly fruity and quite long.

James Lawther MW

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

Restrained, reticent nose. Powerful tannic frame. Perhaps a touch of extraction. Tough and tight on the finish. Exudes a certain power.

Steven Spurrier

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

Richly but naturally extracted black fruits nose with fragrance from Cabernet Franc. Very good concentration of black fruits on the palate and ripe tannins for the future; lots of character and quite elegant.
