Notes, according to Bertrand Le Guern

On Bertrand Le Guern’s grid, which compiles the notes from every journalists for the 2008 vintages for 402 wines :
Château Fleur Cardinale and Château La Dominique have an average note of 90/100 and are listed in 85th position – taking in account every wine (red, white, micro-cuvees and other garage wine included) – and it is a good result
Haut Carles, with 89/100 is positioned at 129th place and should still make us forget Fronsac appellation.
Virginie de Valandraud must still suffer from its name which seems to still be considered a second wine when it has not been for more than 10 years !

Clos Badon with 88/100 and the 191st place is in line with a good Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe. That’s good as the price falls in line with the category!
Is the Saint Emilion classification still credible these days?

Fayat-Thunevin and La Commanderie de Mazeyres with 87/100 in 264th place, Clément Pichon 86/100 in 334th place still have a lot of work to do to reach Bordeaux bigwigs.
