A 20 out of 20 Wine from the Guru Clive Coates is a wine not to be missed! The wine outscores La Tache and is level with La Romanee-Conti!
It is not $8500.00 a bottle or even $2500.00 a bottle. You can buy it for $424.00!
Issue 34 of superb The World of Fine Wine has featured an article and extensive tasting titled 2008 Red Burgundy Hidden Treasure.
Some 300 Grand and Premier Crus were tasted and the comment from Clive Coates MW is "...I am convinced that some 2008s are every bit as good, in their very differents ways, as the same wines produced a year later. And I am not alone in that view". Many wine makers in Burgundy will tell you the same thing.
The best 2008 red Burgundies are fresh and sophisticated and merit a place in all serious cellars.
We were delighted to see the 2008 A-F Gros Richebourg at the very peak of Clive Coate's list of the top wines of the vintage. He scored the wine a perfect 20 out of 20! Alongside are some very famous names that invariably cost a lot more! This wine is really in the BIG LEAGUE!
We (cheekily) asked the domaine if they had a little more and to our surprise (and delight) they said yes! We purchased what we could. The wine is on the way from France and will arrive at the end of September. You can still buy it at the Pre Arrival Price of $424.00 (normal price is $499.00). That is not a lot of money for serious Richebourg. I can tell you that the second wine on Clive Coate's list would cost you at around twenty times as much!
