Bordeaux 2009 - Petit Chateaux, Cru Bourgeois & Satellites
Available Wines - Updated Mar 15
2009 is already a legendary vintage talked about loudly in comparisons with other great Bordeaux vintages as 1959, 1961, 1982, 1990, 2000, 2005 and next year's 2010.
In great years such as 2009, the Petit Chateaux, Cru Bourgeois and Satellite Appellations are great value. If you want to see the overall quality of a Bordeaux vintage, one only has to sample wines from these so called lesser regions to get an idea of the quality of the vintage. These can be great early drinkers while the Grand Cru Classe's and Pomerols age in your cellar. Some are short-term cellars (3-5 years), others can be drank nicely with an hour's decant. Pair with lamb or red meat dishes. Who said there were no bargains in Bordeaux? Below is what's available at deVines now with even more selections on the way. Enjoy!
