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!

8. Cantemerle Haut Medoc Red Blend (2008)

« Prev 8 of 8
Average price: $36.69 from 10 stores
Oaky on the nose with toasty wood spice over a shallow and lean core of astringent fruit. Soft and anonymous in the mouth, showing a modicum of mineral flavors and a hint of cherry fruit but this is short, charmless and already drying out. 78pts

My eighth of 8, the group’s eight
