Cote de Beaune 2008 Vintage

Red : AVERAGE

White : VERY GOOD

A cool year producing fresh and elegant wines. Reds have a lot of variability depending on producer with some beautifully elegant wines being made whilst others lack the concentration and power.
Whites are also inconsistent but generally more successful than the reds.
