Bordeaux 2008 en primeur – Saint-Estèphe

Gravel gives way to a little clay in Saint-Estèphe and the wines often show a robustness that is the opposite of Margaux to the south. With few exceptions, these wines showed very well-extracted fruit and a sense of harmony, perhaps not as clearly defined as Pauillac, but a very satisfying range of wines, the best being superb.
