There is a sour bitterness to the finish of this wine that is very off-putting. Life is too short to waste time on something like this...not even sure I want to use it for cooking...pouring down the drain.
Given a 90 minute decant, and drunk against the 2006 Pipeau. Both were completely mature, but the 08 has greater richness, complexity and viscosity, and is a very enjoyable drink for the money. Can't see either of them improving.
