Stephen Brook

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

Sweet, fleshy damson nose, super-ripe and oaky. Rich, dense, tannic, a touch hard now but not too extracted. A forceful wine that’s assertive now but has the stuffing and structure to age well, though it may never be that elegant. Long.

James Lawther MW

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

Rich, concentrated extract. Layered fruit. Powerful in style. Big tannic frame – a touch on the robust side. Will need time.

Steven Spurrier

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

Crunchy blackcurrant fruit showing some Cabernet Franc. Ripe and rich on the palate, tannins are there and the finish is a bit raw; a powerful wine that needs time to absorb the tannins.
