The Glory of Bordeaux 2009

The Glory of Bordeaux 2009

by Westgarth Wines March 29, 2019

An unusual vintage, well handled by the winemaker can still result in exemplary wine, and such was the fate of much 2009 Bordeaux. Pending when the grapes were picked, a warm dry summer preceded by a spring with just enough rain yielded wines that those who buy premium wine will pay top dollar for: 2009 is the priciest on the market. Big châteaux like Château Margaux and Haut-Brion created wines Jancis Robinson calls “stunning” but there are also her “better buys” like Bernadotte and Les Ormes de Pez to look for to enjoy this standout vintage.
