Home to perhaps the strongest and firmest wines of the Médoc, 2008 very much favoured this appellation, with densely ripe Cabernets blended with less Merlot than usual in the Grands Vins. Superb colours led the way to vibrant blackcurrant fruit on the nose and both fragrance and power on the palate. Even the lighter styles had taken on more depth of fruit, and the firmer styles were classic Pauillac. Steven Spurrier
