91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2008

($36-$40; 14.5% alcohol) Bright ruby-red. Almost candied sweetness to the aromas and flavors of pungent black fruits and minerals. Then wonderfully ripe, full and sweet in the mouth, with captivating freshness. The tannins arrive very late, allowing the fruit to expand and linger. "We need great ripeness on this chalky site or else we get bad tannins," noted von Neipperg. One of the great values of the vintage: this opened at 13 euros.

Lush blackberry fruit with a touch of sweet rasberry. Pork Chops on the grill and a bottle of Chateau Aiguilhe and your ready for a real treat.

Dark cherry color, rich nose, currant and blackberry jam. In 5 years will be great.
