This is an outstanding vintage for this wine, I am a big fan of the 2008s. They are supple, typical of their place and very accessible already. Going back, this vintage reminds me a bit of the 2006 but not as structural, the 2002 but not as tannic, and the 1996 but not as gamey. Drink with pleasure over the next couple years and put some away to start looking at again around 2018! That's a weird date to write.
