Bordeaux 2009 Round-Up

Things are beginning to heat up in Bordeaux and we are finally beginning to see some of the bigger names. We are also inevitably beginning to see some of the bigger prices.

This, therefore, seemed as good a time as any to round-up the wines that we currently have available, including many that offer value for money in the context of this excellent vintage.

We have included the Robert Parker scores where possible, for your information. These are shown in brackets after the wine details. An asterisk denotes a wine that he believes to be the best ever produced by the property in question.  Additionally, he does not score the sweet whites,  so we have included the scores given to these wines by his colleague Neal Martin.

Further information, including tasting notes and drink dates can be found on our website. If you would like to purchase any of these, please call our consultants on 0845 330 1855, email or visit us online.
