Relive the Nightmare! 2008 Red & White Burgundy (Aug 2022)

The 2008 Chambertin Grand Cru, which was picked from 26 September and would have contained around 20% whole bunch, has a comparatively straightforward bouquet compared to the 2020s. Wild strawberry and raspberry aromas, pastille-like with peppermint aromas emerging reluctantly with time. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit, a little rigid in style, maybe just missing a little flesh in the middle and attenuating on the finish.
