A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Nine Bottle Bordeaux Collector's Set Contains 1 bottle each of: Petrus, d'Yquem, Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, Margaux, Latour, Haut Brion, Mission Haut Brion, Cheval Blanc 750ml
Moderately saturated ruby-red. Plum, leather, pepper and oak on the fresh, aromatic nose. Suave, vibrant and penetrating, with sound acids contributing to the impression of inner-mouth energy. In fact, today the winersquo;s acids clash with the tannins, giving the finish a slight dryness. This will need considerable bottle aging to harmonize. In comparison, the 2004 has better balance, as well as more power.
Deep ruby/purple with a wonderful nose of roasted herbs and scorched earth, this wine has sweet cherry and black currant fruit notes along with hints of graphite and toasty oak. While pure, rich, and more powerful than usual, it remains elegant and precise, characteristics of this stylish wine. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2023.
An elegant, dark ruby/purple-tinged effort displaying notes of tobacco smoke intermixed with sweet currant, cherry, and some toast, this medium-bodied wine has the hallmark purity married graciously with nicely concentrated fruit. The tannins are sweet but present and give definition to this well-made Pessac-Leognan. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2016.
"Deliciously concentrated fruit, which shows considerable power and ripeness. Yellow fruits, spice from new wood and richness are already combining well. And just as a reminder that this has Sauvignon Blanc in the blend, there is a touch of fresh herbaceousness at the end."Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar91-94 points*We will notify you on arrival Fall 2011.*
