2008 Balestard la Tonnelle

Average critic rating : 91.5 points



One of the sleepers of the vintage, the 2008 is the finest effort from this estate since 1982. It boasts an opaque black/purple color as well as sweet black fruit characteristics intermixed with notions of charcoal, underbrush, and forest floor. Opulent and super-concentrated, with excellent fruit density, surprising power and length, and noticeable tannins (velvety and well-integrated), this is a noteworthy effort that should age for 15+ years.
