Tasting Report: 2009 - The Great Modern Vintage of Bordeaux
March 3rd, 2012
It’s seldom that a vintage such as 2009 comes to Bordeaux. The last time may have been 1989, or even 1982. Some wine merchants in Bordeaux say it hasn’t happened since 1961,1959, 1945, or even 1929. One said 1899. But one thing is for certain: 2009 is an amazing vintage for Bordeaux.
Wine lovers who already purchased 2009 Bordeaux as futures or en primeur are never going to be disappointed with the quality in the bottle. And investors in the vintage for the long-term should be happy considering it will be revered for decades to come and should increase in value – although probably not in the short term, with a few exceptions due to the high prices paid at the beginning.
