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!

5. Château Lagrange St. Julien les Fiefs de Lagrange (2008)

« Prev Next » 5 of 8
Average price: $51.42 from 9 stores
Classic Cabernet nose full of weedy notes, crisp and focused with red and black currant fruit over an oaky base. On the palate this comes of as rich and soft, front loaded with fruit then a bit chunky and simple with nice red currant fruit supported by soft tannins and bright acids but little complexity and considering how open this is little chance to develop much. 86pts

My fifth of 8, the group’s sixth
