Chateau Haut-Sorillon 2008

To borrow a word from the marketing departments of large US breweries–this wine embodies ‘drinkability’. It’s packed with intense dark fruits, but has a rather light body. Each sip goes down easy and lingers. It has the mouthfeel of a summery wine, but the intensity to pair with winter stews and pot roasts. It’s long-lived too–we had this bottle open for 3 days and it continued to open up without a taint of vinegary or oxidized flavors.
