TN: 2008 Pol Roger Champagne Blanc de Blancs (France, Champagne)

  • 2008 Pol Roger Champagne Blanc de Blancs - France, Champagne (7/9/2020)
    A generous nose of brioche, white peach and aniseed. It is full, rich and creamy, with good intensity and cut by the vintage's minerally acidity. Good finesse and length.

Re: TN: Giaconda Chardonnay 2008

They were quite ripe and heady around this time. Certainly a lot finer and paired-back now.

The 90's were the great wines for mine. '93, '95 and '96, if the cork has held out are as good as Grand Cru white Burgundy.

They were very well priced Kent. Sadly a recent '07 was badly oxidised. In fact I have had a poor run over the last month. Dauvissat '08 Foret was shot two days ago and I just opened an advanced 2010 Henri Boillot Corton-Charlemagne.

Re: 2014 Red Burgundy

Whilst I reckon the '14's have tightened a little over the past 12 months, they are still generous, giving and utterly delicious. I reckon the may move along a similar trajectory as the '00's, which never truly shut down and have offered so much pleasure over a couple of decades.

Why Greg? Even the lightest, weakest vintage of the past 30 years in 1992 still drinks well today. There are some excellent deep and rich 2018's that will easily meet the criteria of aging.
