"Cold, wet weather meant the 2008 growing season was a challenge in Bordeaux. A spell of warm, dry conditions in July and an Indian summer in September saved the season from being a write-off, and some outstanding wines were made. James Suckling attended a small tasting of the 2008 Bordeaux vintage during Vinexpo Hong Kong in May organized by wine merchants Farr Vintners. Here are his top 10, including two exciting whites."
DOMAINE de CHEVALIER Blanc 2008:
"Very attractive aromas of grapefruit, sliced apple and lemon. Some lanolin. Full body, intense dried fruit and hints of vanilla bean. Crazy finish. This a unique white that shows incredible depth and power. Drink or hold.
