2008 Bordeaux Blind Tasting

A small selection of Bordeaux wines from the challenging 2008 vintage, tasted blind.

This selection of wines shows how wide the range of prices, and quality is in 2008, and frankly how price does not guarantee that quality. For example Cantenac was hit by significant hail in 2008, and the wines is frankly not worth buying while ont he other hand Ch. Potensac has produced an absolutely delicious wine that Bordeaux lovers will rejoice over. Take your pick at about $30!

Average price: $60.69 from 35 stores
Moist soil rich in clay greets the nose along with notes of charry wood, cinnamon, and beefy. This is a bit sweet and soft in the mouth with a hard currant, candied fruit edge that’s a touch diffuse but really quite balanced with nice inner mouth tension and a seductive feel. The finish shows a touch darker with a lovely black cherry finale. 90pts

My second of 8 wines, the group’s fifth.
