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!

4. Château Carbonnieux Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan (2008)

« Prev Next » 4 of 8
Average price: $34.31 from 2 stores
Red and fruity on the nose with a nice leafy Cabernet Franc edge that shows sweet herbs, pipe tobacco and some astringent soil tones. A touch sweet early on the palate, with red plummy fruit that is soft and front loaded leading to a crisp, fairly tannic finish of decent length with a red fruity finale 88pts

My fourth of 8 wines, the group’s fourth.
