Bordeaux 2009 Update

The 2009 en primeur campaign has yet to gather full speed and we are waiting with bated breath for the release of a few of the main-players in this vintage. We suspect, however, that the highest-flying Châteaux may not be on the market until the beginning of June, as their owners will be enjoying the end of this month at the Vinexpo wine fair in Hong Kong.

Despite the relative quiet, the last few weeks have not been without interest as we have seen the release of the majority of the Sauternes, including the great wines of Suduiraut (now sold out) and Rieussec. Additionally, several Médoc and Right Bank Châteaux have released, including the extremely popular and very reasonably priced Châteaux Batailley and Amelisse.

The rate at which these wines have sold is testament to the demand in this vintage and we recommend that you get in touch with us as soon as possible after a wine is released if you wish to secure a case. While the releases so far have been relatively minor, all the wines are selling far more briskly than usual. This is perhaps an indication of the attention the most acclaimed wines are likely to receive when they are released.

If you would like to discuss this vintage or the wines please email us or call one of our consultants on 0845 330 1855. Full details of our Bordeaux 2009 campaign, including a list of the wines we expect to offer, as well as all releases, can also be found online.
