Wine News : To buy or not to buy Bordeaux 2008s


Two newpaper articles that talk about the 2008 Bordeaux. My personal view, though I have not had the opportunity to try the 2008s, is that they are not of the class as the 2005s. The sellers are talking it up to try to boost sales. With the Global Economic Recession, buyers are not biting.

    This is an excellent vintage, with at least some excellent wines from most appellations. The right bank has perhaps yielded more consistent success than the left bank, but that is not to say the Médoc is devoid of good wines. Indeed, a handful are thrilling. But on the right bank there are breathtaking wines, from Cheval-Blanc and Ausone, through Vieux Chateau Certan and Conseillante, through to less exalted names such as Beauregard and Clos Fourtet. The wines possess rich fruit, good acidity and, in the best examples, vibrant aromatics too.I like to drink wine with my Cuban Cigars
