Stephen Brook

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

Firm, plummy nose. Rich and solid, with ample weight of fruit and rather formidable tannins. Extracted and chocolaty, and slightly bitter on the aftertaste. This strives to impress, but ends up overworked and rather dry.

James Lawther MW

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

Attractive berry fruit. Layered fruit on the palate. Tight, firm tannic structure. Freshness and length on the finish.

Steven Spurrier

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

Ripe red and black berry fruit. Very Merlot dominant and quite ripe and forward. Good tannins for the mid-term but not overly complex.
