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.

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!

It has a very attractive bouquet with cedar and tobacco aromas. A lovely "classic" Saint Julien nose. The palate is ripe and well-defined with firm tannins extremely well balanced towards the elegant finish. This is beautifully made and quite feminine surpassing my expectations. Tasted January 2012.

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.
