I like 2008 Pomerol as well. But there are several exciting wines from the Medoc and Pessac Leognan that are worth buying. If consumers are selective, Margaux, Pauillac, St. Julien and St. Estephe also produced some very nice wines. Especially when you factor in the price.
I've been able to taste the vintage 4 times. The last two times were in bottle. If you want to read my reviews and notes on 2008 Bordeaux
