Tasting: 2008 vintage

Here are the bottles we were served for dinner and paired with a very good meal, great atmosphere and 2008 Bordeaux magnums.

1st course
Château Rouget, very well made. I always believed that this wine is undervalued; it’s the value of a Pomerol, a complete wine and still holding great promises…
Château La Conseillante with its unique style and Haut -Carles, confirmation of the high level of this wine which should also be the case for the great 2011.

2nd course
Château Pichon-Lalande, château Montrose and again Haut-Carles holding very well, for comparative tastings are terrible; François Mauss’ grand jury proves it every time.

While waiting for the 2012 harvest, we have good weather, even very good weather. Margaux appellation released a statement mentioning the 2005 vintage, the better, if it could be true.
