Stephen Brook

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

Dense, leathery, meaty nose, charred oak. Very rich and dense, fiercely concentrated and high in alcohol, this is too much of a good thing: extracted tannins, mocha flavours from the oak, relatively low acidity, and a fiery finish.

James Lawther MW

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

Dense, complex nose. Hint of spice, chocolate, liquorish and dark fruit. Palate rich and concentrated. Plenty of layered fruit. Powerful tannic frame. Long, firm finish.

Steven Spurrier

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

Deeply extracted, rich and slightly smoky nose. Big, broad and quite massive fruit and dense tannins are there as is the natural acidity, but it is a bit chocolaty and rich, and could have more vineyard precision.
