2008 Bordeaux and Barolo 4-Pack

A Traditionalist’s Vintage

2008 Bordeaux and Barolo 4-Pack A Traditionalist’s Vintage - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Believe it or not, the year 2008 is now almost a full decade behind us! Time certainly flies, and the good news is that many wines from the 2008 vintage—long deemed unready to drink—are now beginning to turn the corner of youth into fine wine’s equivalent of adolescence. Still young and vigorous, with many years of life ahead, they are finally starting to show the wisdom and nuance acquired from the passage of time.
    In both Bordeaux and Piedmont, the 2008 vintage yielded structured, muscular wines with lively acidity and firm tannins that are only now beginning to soften. A year that recalls an era before global warming and the prevalence of overripe, over-extracted, and downright overblown styles, it allowed traditionalists like the Fantino brothers of Monforte d’Alba and Château Gombaude-Guillot of Pomerol to craft seriously profound, perfumed, age-worthy wines. After all, Barolo is often compared to red Burgundy, but Nebbiolo from Monforte may actually have more in common with Merlot grown on the Pomerol plateau: both showcase plush fruit, powerful structure, and often develop notes of truffle with bottle age.
    This discounted four-pack will allow you to dive in right away and also save a second bottle for ten or twenty years down the line. It may sound like a long time, but remember, time flies. –Anthony Lynch

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
