The 1908 Bordeaux vintage was very uneven, with hard wines, with full-bodied tannins, lacking finesse and elegance, although some châteaux produced great wines. Today, the reds still have tannin and good color. That year, Château Margaux created its Pavillon Rouge label to designate its second wine.
The Sauternes are still excellent, and comparable to the 1906 vintage.
In Burgundy, bad weather affected the quality, while in Champagne, mildew and cochylis were the main problems.
On the other hand, in the Rhone Valley, the 1908 vintage was a great success, with a remarkable quality similar to that of 1904.
The 1908 wines are not memorable and it is not for its taste qualities that one will choose a bottle of 1908. However, it is nice to have a bottle of 1908 wine on the table to honor a guest or celebrate a special event.
