Neal Martin of Vinous Media has just recently retasted 2008 Bordeaux after in bottle for 10 years. 2008 has shaped up as a very attractive wine, better than its immediate neighbouring 2007 and 2011. It is a great vintage to start drinking now. 

2008 Bordeaux - Ten Years On…
2008 Haut Brion
RP96      HK$3420
...it reveals more evolution and complexity in its large-scaled perfume. The dense purple color is followed by a sweet nose of creosote, asphalt, blueberries, black currants and jammy raspberries, sweet tannins, a savory, fleshy mouthfeel and a stunning finish. - RP

2008 Palmer
RP94      HK$1665
A stunning success for the vintage, and possibly the Margaux of the year...Loads of barbecue smoke, licorice, incense, blackberry, new saddle leather and forest floor notes...It is full, rich, layered, and should be reasonably approachable with 3-4 years of bottle age, and will also keep for 30+ years. - RP
2008 Cheval Blanc
RP93      HK$3800
The 2008 Cheval Blanc (55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc) is a winner from this underrated, classic vintage. Notes of forest floor, Asian plum sauce, black currants, sweet cherries and spice are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with deep fruit, admirable purity, and a long, textured finish. - RP
2008 Domaine de Chevalier
RP93      HK$515
...lots of purity and abundant charcoal, black currant and floral notes. The sweetness of the fruit, depth of flavor and textured, lush mouthfeel in this medium to full-bodied, ageworthy 2008 are impressive...I would not be surprised if it turns out to be as impressive as the 2010. - RP
2008 Duhart-Milon
RP94      HK$700
Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density. - RP
2008 Magrez Fombrauge
RP95      HK$1080
It boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with abundant aromas of white chocolate, plum sauce, blueberries and cassis. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannins, it is the softest, most evolved and forward of any Magrez-Fombrauge wine produced to date. It can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-15+ years. - RP
2008 Moulin de Duhart
We are offering this at a price well below market!
2008 Evangile
RP94      HK$1134
This superb claret was aged 18 months in 75% new French oak. Mulberry, spring flower, black cherry and raspberry characteristics as well as hints of spice and coffee emerge from this full-bodied, opulent, structured beauty. It should age effortlessly for 15-20 years. - RP
