The Outrageous Claret Sale At All Boisdale Restaurants & Bars - The Best Wine Offer In London


Château Leoville Poy­ferre 2008

WAS £160 Bois­dale sale price NOW £75/​bottle (£85 off)

One of the finest over-achiev­ing efforts in this vin­tage as well as a best buy” for a top-flight St.-Julien, this 2008 reveals a boat­load of sweet cas­sis & black cher­ry fruit inter­twined with notions of liquorice, smoke & oak. This sen­sa­tion­al wine is already drink­ing well and will be even bet­ter with 2 – 3 years of cel­lar­ing. It should last for 20 – 25 years.

Full-bod­ied, remark­ably con­cen­trat­ed and stun­ning­ly pure and tex­tured” 94 Points Robert Parker

Thick and rich with great tan­nins but quite enough ripeness too” 17.5 Points Jan­cis Robinson

Château Leoville Bar­ton 2008

WAS £165 Bois­dale sale price NOW £77/​bottle (£88 off)

Anoth­er block­buster, long-term wine from pro­pri­etor Antho­ny Bar­ton, this 2008 is among the biggest, most back-strap­ping efforts of the vin­tage. This brawny, mas­cu­line-styled St.-Julien pos­sess­es huge body, mas­sive con­cen­tra­tion and mouth-sear­ing lev­els of tan­nin. How­ev­er, the tan­nins are much sweet­er than the 2005’s were at the same stage.

This impres­sive­ly pure, clas­sic Bor­deaux” 94 Points Robert Parker

A deli­cious wine, very bal­anced” 93 Points James Suck­ling, Wine​spec​ta​tor​.com

Château Lynch­es Bages 2008

WAS £195 Bois­dale sale price NOW £105/​bottle (£90 off) 

A sen­sa­tion­al effort for the vin­tage, this tex­tured, opu­lent, superb Lynch Bages is already strut­ting its stuff & should eas­i­ly last for 20 years.

Medi­um to full-bod­ied with an opaque dense pur­ple col­or, notes of flow­ers & cas­sis, a lay­ered tex­ture that builds incre­men­tal­ly in the mouth & tremen­dous puri­ty & depth, it can be drunk now or cel­lared for two decades or more. Bravo!

Excel­lent — unadul­ter­at­ed Caber­net that should drink well over two decades.” 93 Points Neal Mar­tin, Wine Advocate

Château Pavil­lon Rouge 2008

WAS £199 Bois­dale sale price NOW £120/​bottle (£79 off)

The sec­ond wine, the 2008 Pavil­lon Rouge du Château Mar­gaux, It is a beau­ti­ful wine exhibit­ing clas­sic puri­ty along with red & black fruits inter­mixed with liquorice, tobac­co leaf and flo­ral nuances. Sweet, round tan­nins and a love­ly for­ward fresh­ness sug­gest, this stun­ning sec­ond wine should drink well young.

It is a beau­ti­ful wine” 92 Points Robert Park­er, Wine Advocate

There is cer­tain­ly lots of plea­sure here” 17 Points Jan­cis Robin­son MW, Jan​cis​Robin​son​.com
