Bond Melbury 2008 3-Pack OWC 1.5L
The 2008 Melbury speaks in soft, hushed tones. All the signatures of this site are in place, but the 2008 is a quiet wine. In the context of this complete vertical, the 2008 feels like walking into a library. Understated and fresh, the 2008 has plenty of life ahead. It will be interesting to see if it emerges from its shell one day. Hints of truffle, leather and spice add the closing shades of nuance. I don't expect the 2008 to be as long lived as some of the other vintages in this lineup, but it is quite distinctive today. Drink through 2028.
