They’re here. The 2009 Bordeaux are just starting to arrive.

Most of the top Bordeaux 2009s are sold-out last year when they were first offered as futures and this would have been also except I just never got around to offering in the flood of releases last summer. Grab a case while we still have this available.

The 2009 Bordeaux vintage Wine Spectator rates a 95-98 for the Right Bank and describes as, “rich and powerful yet round and friendly, with velvety texture and loads of fruit,”

This is the vintage we have been clearing space in the cellar for,. The vintage Robert Parker started a fire storm of demand for when he wrote, “some of the greatest wines I have tasted in 32 years,” one of the greatest vintages of our lifetimes – it’s here.

Kick it off right with Beaulieu Comtes de Tastes 2009.

Robert Parker raves about this Right Bank estate:

“This is one of Bordeaux’s finest run over-achievers.”

Wine Spectator bestows a whopper of a rating: 88-91, reviewing this gem as, “A minerally and fruity wine, but subdued and balanced. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Score range: 88-91 -JS” – Wine Spectator

Parker liked this Bordeaux Superieur wine so much that he selected it for inclusion in his book Robert Parker’s Wine Bargains: The World’s Best Wine Values Under $25. “…this sensational wine exhibits excellent texture, medium body, and soft tannins and is a beauty to enjoy over 5-6 years.”

This is the wine that everyone is looking for – a 2009 Bordeaux with incredible taste and quality for a price you can pull the cork on everyday.
