Fine Wine: Red Burgundy 2008 - 10 Years On

Fine Wine: Red Burgundy 2008 - 10 Years On

On this superb evening we shall be tasting a selection of excellent Burgundies from the lovely 2008 vintage. This vintage was rated by Clive Coats MW (Master of Wine) 16/20 and the wines were classed as a 'miracle' by Jancis Robinson as the vintage was almost lost but a last minute long Indian-type Summer saved the vintage. Whilst yields are low and sorting was very important the good and great producers crafted some excellent wines that developed well over the past decade. This are wines that after ten years patiently maturing in bottle are now in great harmony and at their peak. 

All wines tasted are of Premier or Grand Cru standard, the highest peaks of Burgundian wine. Included are Grand Crus such as Clos Vougeot, Charmes-Chambertin and Mazoyères-Chambertin.
