A vintage sandwiched between the big hype, big wines of 2007 and the juicy, very rounded wines of 2009. A natural commercial struggle, thus. For the discerning drinker, as they say, opportunity to drink well, without a long wait. A lot of domaines suppressed their Prestige cuvées, which obviously enhanced the depth of their Tradition wine - a bit like the good old days. Please log in to see the Leading red 2008s.
The review of 2008 starts this year with Gigondas, where some perfectly acceptable, slow-burn wines have been made from its later ripening soils. To see the leading names, and also the comments on the vintage in both vineyard and cellar, please log in. Then press Leading Wines, the subtitle under 2008 Southern Rhône.
