Pinot Noir * 75cl * 13% ABV * Burgundy, France

"One of the secrets to buying Burgundy is to buy 'difficult' vintages and let them sit for a while: more often than not, you’ll be sitting on a winner. Most of the maligned vintages in Burgundy eventually turn a corner and produce wonderful older bottles – 2001 and 2004 are two such examples, and 2008 is certainly another. This is a classicist’s dream: there’s a savoury and gamey quality to 2008 reds that is just unmistakable as a Pinot Noir from one of France’s greatest regions. Within that, Clos Vougeot is perhaps the most famous vineyard, and certainly one of the most historic – from a tiny parcel of vines within Clos Vougeot, Pascal Roblet-Monet made a wonderfully rich, yet fresh and structured 2008 that’s now starting to show it’s true personality as a wine of great depth and complexity of flavour. Able to age for another twenty years or more, but perhaps also the perfect wine for a monumental occasion now, this is a Burgundian classic." Rob MacCulloch MW
