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!

A bit astringent on the nose with notes of iron and toasted oak accenting the slightly roasted black cherry fruit. Soft and silky on entry this shows of some crisp tannins with a savory edged core of bitter cherry fruit. There’s good complexity here and the fruit powers right through the bright finish. Nice depth and complexity, certainly not the best wine here but one that is ready and delicious. 88pts

My third of 8, the group’s seventh
