Chateau de Lamarque ~ VINTAGE 2008
neil martin ~ 90 points
Tasted at the Union des Grands Crus 2008 tasting in London.
This is one of the best wines that I have encountered from this estate in recent years. It is very well defined on the nose with joyous blackberry, boysenberry and wild hedgerow and a touch of cedar. The palate is very well defined with good fruit concentration, a nice gamey element towards the structured, persistent finish that nods towards the Rhône.
There is so much character within this wine. Excellent. Drink 2011-2025
