Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Chateau Nairac has a waxy bouquet with scents of kumquat and pineapple, the oak not quite as well assimilated as the 2009. The palate is fresh on the entry with a delicate touch of spice. It gathers intensity toward the middle and finish, fanning out nicely with mandarin and marmalade notes. This has more to give, so cellar for another two or three years, but opt for the 2007 or 2009 if you want to see Nairac firing on all cylinders. Drink 2016-2035. Tasted March 2014.
