A lighter version of the 2010 Pagodes, the 2008 offers up aromas of herbs, incense, charcoal, black currants and cherries. An elegant, mid-weight wine with sweet tannin as well as an attractive, open-knit personality, it should drink nicely for a decade.

Dark crimson. Scented. Sweet start and a little simple. Very dusty tannins on the finish. But the fruit is much riper than most Haut-Médocs.
