One of the finest over-achieving efforts in this vintage as well as a "best buy" for a top-flight St.-Julien this 2008 is an irresistible success. It reveals an opaque ruby/purple color lots of unctuosity and a boatload of sweet cassis and black cherry fruit intertwined with notions of licorice smoke and oak. Full-bodied remarkably concentrated and stunningly pure and textured this sensational wine is already drinking well and will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring. It should last for 20-25 years. Bravo!

Generous and ripe, obviously extracted, this is a wine that is packed with tannins sharpened with black fruits. Spice, wood and acidity add to the depth of flavor.

Very complex on the nose and palate. Ripe red fruits good concentration smooth tannins and a nice long finish make this wine a winner!

I am impressed with the fruit and velvety tannins. Full and deliciously fruity with soft tannins and rich fruit. Blueberry. Open and gorgeous. Impressive for the vintage.

Very direct with black currant and fig paste jumping out and driving all the way through the lightly muscular finish where extra iron espresso and charcoal notes fill in. An iron edge lingers. This needs a little time... Very direct with black currant and fig paste jumping out and driving all the way through the lightly muscular finish where extra iron espresso and charcoal notes fill in.

Aromas of mulberry, redcurrant, mocha, sassafras and spicy oak, with an attractive floral topnote. Juicy, suave and fine-grained, with a repeating floral quality giving the wine lovely inner-mouth perfume. Very sexy oak here. Finishes with firm but suave tannins and excellent dusty persistence.

Savoury, dark and serious. Plenty of fibrous tannin. Smoke and blackcurrant flavour. Traditional, powerful structure with modern, ripe fruit - a great combination. 17.5/20 (RH)
