2008 Bolaire, Bordeaux Superieur Top Pick!
2008 Bolaire, Bordeaux Superieur

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing abundant minerality as well as a leaner, tighter style than the 2010's with less mass, extraction and power, this elegant, medium-bodied 2008 exhibits raspberry and black currant fruit, cedar, loamy soil and a hint of spice box. It should be consumed over the next 3-4 years. (RP)" (5/2011) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, dark red. Redcurrant, tobacco and menthol on the nose. Broad, sweet and fairly full in the mouth, with a fine grain to the flavors of currant, tobacco, herbs and earth. Not especially complex or structured but nicely made. The finish features broad, ri ...Read More »

2008 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

Jancis Robinson: "Deep crimson with a purple tinge. The only blend that might change very slightly - maybe add a little bit more press wine or something. Really rather seductive nose. You could almost drink this now! Very polished and rich and zesty. Pretty clever. Hint of malt that softens it. Then scrunched up on the finish. Clean and neat. Lots of Merlot." (5/2009) K&L Notes: This is Château Latour's third wine, created by the estate in 1973 from the finished wine that is still good, but that doesn't fit the Les Forts de Latour (Latour's second label) profile. It was only produced ... Read More »

2008 d'Yquem, Sauternes

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. The Yquem 2008 is easy to spot in a blind line-up: it is (to quote Tina Turner) simply the best. It has a subtle, delicate but very pretty bouquet with fine definition and astounding minerality. The palate is beautifully poised, tense and tightly coiled on the entry and then it just explodes in the mouth with pure, unbridled, joyous botrytized fruit struck through with a silver thread of acidity. It displays exemplary tension and freshness, along with great persistency in the mouth. This is an outstanding Sauternes ...Read More »

2008 Argadens, Bordeaux

Wine Spectator: "Fresh and supple, with an aromatic singed bay leaf edge to the medium-weight plum and black currant fruit. A flash of iron gives the finish some length. (Web-2012)"

2008 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Stylish wine, balanced, intensely elegant. It has freshness and also weight, encased in a structure that is poised, beautifully integrating black currant fruit and chocolate flavors." (4/2011)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 is a beauty in the style of the 1988. Although not performing as well as I predicted last year, it is unquestionably an outstanding effort as well as one of the better values from Pichon Lalande in many years. Its dense plum/purple hue is accompanied by sweet aromas of red and black currants, charcoal, herbs, underbrush and a hint of truffles. This medium-bo ...Read More »

2008 Pape-Clément, Pessac-Léognan

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top successes of the vintage, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was harvested between October 8 and 24. The late harvest ensured perfect ripeness as evidenced by the sweet bouquet of black cherries, lead pencil shavings, cassis and subtle barbecue smoke. Well-balanced with good acidity, ripe tannins, medium to full body and a layered mouthfeel, this excellent 2008 can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years." (5/2011)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full, saturated bright ruby. Restrained but captivating aromas of bl ...Read More »

2008 Bon Pasteur, Pomerol

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A delicious, impressive, stunningly seductive offering, the 2008 Bon Pasteur exhibits spicy, mocha, coffee bean, black currant and sweet mulberry aromas and flavors. With silky tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, admirable purity and an irresistible personality, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years." (5/2011)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, dark red. Captivating aromas and flavors of blueberry, mocha, espresso and sexy oak. Elegant, seamless wine with nicely integrated acidity. Suave and smooth but with real lift and clarity. This very pure, sexy wine is balanc ...Read More »

2008 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien

95 points James Suckling: "Super racy and balanced. Masses of licorice and currants, intense aromas. Full and very silky with an intensity of fruit. Reminds me of the 1996. Best after 2015." (12/2010)95 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** With its superb tannins, the wine has a great solid core of structure. Over it is an edifice of direct black berry fruits, elegant texture and intense acidity. Impressive, a wine for aging." (4/2011)94 points Wine Spectator: "This is loaded for the vintage, with layer upon layer of crushed blackberry, fig paste and mulled black currant offset by smoldering tobacco, charcoal and anise notes. ...Read More »

2008 Latour, Pauillac

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Expressive fruit aromas and wood perfumes announce this wine. With 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a complex wine marked by purity of black fruits, berries, toast and tannins. It has power, richness and a lovely edge of spice to go with the acidity. The wine is firmly structured, while bursting with fruit and freshness." (4/2011)95 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous aromas. Sandalwood and flowers, so perfumed and beautiful. Spices and currants with cassis too. Amazing nose. Such beauty and density with an iron and pure fruit character. Solid and racy. Best after 2015."

2008 Margaux, Margaux

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Definite richness alongside classic elegance. It's a stylish wine, the fruit integrated into a beautiful structure. It's not all refinement, because there is also a weight to the black plum skin and dark berry character. A wine that will age over many decades." (4/2011)94 points James Suckling: "This is so subtle and refined on the nose with amazing perfumes of rose petal, blueberries and blackberries. Full but very tight and fresh with a lovely length that goes on and on. Starts off slowly with a solid core of fruit, then grows denser and denser. This is shy at ...Read More »

2008 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich and fresh, with firm dark tannins, acidity and true black currant flavor. There is a chewy, chalky texture underlying beautiful fruit." (4/2011)92 points James Suckling: "Caramel and flowers and currants and berries on the nose. Full and velvety with a good density and lots of fruity elegance and balance. Very pretty. Give it four years of bottle age please." (12/2010)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong effort, this 2008 exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, more minerality than the 2010 and hints of cedarwood, black currants, underbrush and forest floor. This round, generous blend of 66.5% Cabernet Sauvign ...Read More »

2008 l'Evangile, Pomerol

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A 2,700-case blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc cropped at a low 27 hectoliters per hectare (compare that with 39 hectoliters per hectare in 2009 and 31 in 2010), this superb claret was aged 18 months in 75% new French oak. Mulberry, spring flower, black cherry and raspberry characteristics as well as hints of spice and coffee emerge from this full-bodied, opulent, structured beauty. It should age effortlessly for 15-20 years." (5/2011)93 points James Suckling: "Chocolate and berry and rich with gorgeous nose. Plums and berries. Full and super soft with a lovely velvety tex ...Read More »

2008 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A rich wine, opulent in character. There is power here, with richness of fruit and texture. It is both serious side and exuberant, with its bursting black berry fruits." (4/2011)94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of roasted fruit plus hints of grilled meat and chocolate. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and bright acidity. Tangy and lively. Needs time still to come together to soften the tannins. A little hard. Better in 2018." (3/2015)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The final blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot exhibits tell-tale black currant liqueur, incense, charcoal and floral-like characteristics. ...Read More »

2008 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is profound! 2008 Haut-Brion: The extraordinary 2008 Haut-Brion is a candidate for wine of the vintage. Composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, it reveals more evolution and complexity in its large-scaled perfume. The dense purple color is followed by a sweet nose of creosote, asphalt, blueberries, black currants and jammy raspberries, sweet tannins, a savory, fleshy mouthfeel and a stunning finish. This incredibly pure, noble wine was produced from one of the estate's smallest crops. It should drink well for three deca ...Read More »

2008 Clinet, Pomerol

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another resounding success for the vintage, the opaque purple-colored 2008 Clinet (14.4% alcohol) is composed of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields of 38 hectoliters per hectare, while higher than in 2010, were still modest. Another powerful, big, large-scaled effort, the 2008 exhibits an inky/purple color as well as sweet creme de cassis, blackberry, plum, Asian spice, licorice and incense notes. Layered and full-bodied with stunning purity and a 40+ second finish, this beauty needs 3-5 years of bottle age and should keep f ...Read More »

2008 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A magnificent sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Duhart Milon is the shrewd consumer’s wine to purchase by the case as prices do not yet reflect its qualitative resurgence. Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density. Enjoy this top-notch 2008 over the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (5/2011)92 points James Suckling: "Dark crimson. Very inte ...Read More »

2008 La Mission-Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like a lot of wines in this underrated vintage, the 2008 La Mission was one of the great bargains of recent vintages. Its healthy blue/purple color is followed by aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, licorice, truffles, underbrush and forest floor. The scorched earthy/smoky character of this estate’s terroir has not yet emerged. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated with good acidity, freshness and delineation, this is a big wine for the vintage, but also very classic in its balance of tannin, acidity and extract. It will benefit from another 5-7 y ...Read More »

2008 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

95 points James Suckling: "I am really impressed with this. It is powerful and rich with so much blueberry, vanilla and spice on the nose and palate. It's full and very spicy, and fruit on the palate, but remains refined and subtle. Rich and polished tannins. This needs at least five years of bottle age to come around." (12/2010)95 points Wine Enthusiast: "A great success, showing impressive concentration. It is almost severe to begin with, then sweet tannins sweep in. The higher than usual proportion of Merlot gives a wine that combines plumpness with black plums, figs and acidity. Obviously for aging. ...Read More »
