2008 vintage, rare wine

 

2008 is a particular vintage in that it was quite disciminating, sometimes within the same vineyard.

Benefiting from a favorable climate, Bordeaux appellations are some of the most successful, with very fine to exceptional crus. Special mention to Saint-Emilion wines, which are rewarded with an excellent vintage, one of Bordeaux’s best.

 

Bourgogne turned out more heterogeneous. If white wine features prominently, certain red wines from Beaune or Côte Chalonnaise for example are also very nice. 2008 borders on excellence in Jura red wines, in keeping with the previous year, with remarkable Arbois and Côtes du Jura wines. Alsace is, without a doubt, a great success, especially in terms of Grands Crus.

 

Regarding Beaujolais, Provence and Corse, a limited number of « stars » are produced. Beautiful reds in Savoie and quality whites in Lorraine. South-west wines were pushed to their limits in order to produce fine wines despite unfortunate weather conditions. Champagne offers an excellent vintage despite a troublesome winter.

 

Overall, 2008 is a bit more qualitative than its predecessor but requires analytical fineness depending on the vineyard.
