Bordeaux 2008s are starting to trickle into Spec's here in Houston. I picked up Laplagnotte-Bellvue 2008 (St-Emilion) last night, a low-to-mid priced, reliable producer that's always in stock at Spec's year-after-year. Juicy, fresh, and modern in style that would satisfy fans of Napa; but lacking richness and concentration. I really had to coax any typicity whatsoever out of the nose with an aggressive swirl. A good drink for the dinner table.
