The 2008 vintage in Bordeaux was a good year with the warmest April for 50 years followed by a very dull May and summer. Growers became very concerned until 60 days of unbroken sunshine in late summer saved the harvest. The Margaux region is the pick of the wines this year. 2008 was a good vintage for White Burgundy and despite a cool, wet spring and early summer July brought settlled sunny conditions through until the weather broke in mid september. It was also a good vintage for Red Burgundy with spicysoft tannic wines being produced. It was a very good vintage in both the North and South of the Cote du Rhone. In Portugal it was a single Quinta Vintage Port year. A note from Charles and Paul Symington of the Symington Port Group, which owns the well known names as W&J Graham Vintage Port, Dow Vintage Port and Warre Vintage Port, stated "What has been produced looks extremely good, even grapes coming in at this stage from high lying areas are producing some impressive wines." The Champagne region also produced some good Champagne which is drinking beautifully. It was also a very good vintage in Italy for red wines.

2008 Allegrini Palazzo della Torre 2008

Scoring 89/100 Parker points and from the very good 2008 vintage "The 2008 Palazzo Della Torre is striking in this vintage. It shows remarkable harmony in a tense, mineral-infused expression of fruit. Hints of licorice, tobacco, mocha and spices develop in the glass, adding further complexity and nuance. All of the elements flow gracefully to a finish layered with the essence of crushed rocks and flowers. This is an absolutely delicious wine from Allegrini. Palazzo della Torre is made with a partial ripasso technique in which 30% of the fruit is dried Amarone-style, while the other 70% is picked and vinified conventionally. Once again, Palazzo della Torre is one of the very finest values in Italian wine." Drink now - 2020. A wonderful 10th vintage wine gift for a 2008 anniversary.

From the good 2009 vintage, this stunning vintage Champagne has a light, appealing pale bright yellow with, green reflections and a fine, persistent bead. The first impression is that of an obvious and reassuring maturity. Gentle and comforting, initial nuances of harvest notes and notes of callisson and vanilla gradually expand into darker, toastier notes of grilled sesame seeds, roasted almonds and mocha. Concurrently, hints of juicy, fleshy fruits create a deeply warm, serene atmosphere reminiscent of an orchard of peaches and apricots in the middle of summer. The floral scent of roses and peonies rounds out an ensemble of radiance and delicacy.The initial impression is welcoming, full-bodied and smooth, an instant sensation of an enveloping, soothing cocoon. Subsequently, the silky fluid texture becomes evident; the controlled power of the Pinot Noir, with notes of honey and mild spices, is underscored by a stimulating nuance of pink grapefruit. Overall, the palate is simultaneously accomplished, generous and airy. Drink now - 2030. A wonderful 10th vintage wine gift for a 2008 anniversary.
