A fever called Bordeaux

Just been pouring through Decanter's website section on 2008 Bordeaux En Primeur. Really, really excited about this upcoming En Primeur campaign, and what it'll mean for my cellar. I've got the fever.

Focussing on the wines that I always buy, of course, but this is definitely a buyer's year. It's an opportunity to get wines that are otherwise priced out of reach. The high quality of the 2008 vintage is just an added plus. And let's be honest - when you talk about Bordeaux, label and brand name comes first, taste comes second.

Looking to buy a lot of Pomeral wines. St-Emilion, as well. The marquee wines? Leoville-Las Cases is on my radar, as is Ducru Beaucaillou, Canon-la-Gaffeliere, Angelus, and Latour.

If fate destines it so, I will be adding a few legendary bottles to my cellar this year.
