2008: Ten Years On

2008: Ten Years On

Written: July 2018

I was a little less enthusiastic at the outset about this vintage though it found a number of supporters. The colours were typically quite pronounced from the word go and though there was often intense fruit at the front and powerful acidity behind, there was too often a hole in the middle between the two….

The wines were tasted in Burgundy in June 2018, having been provided by the producers from their own cellars – bottled which are curculating at large in the world may be more advanced. Please note that these wines were not tasted blind. This was not a great period for the cork industry and there were a dozen wines (notes supported) with evident TCA faults. In most instances there was a clean back-up bottle.
