Oh shit...here we go again!
Decanter.com: Winemakers keen to live up to hype
We're starting to see some news out of Bordeaux about the just harvested (and presumably fermented) 2009 vintage. People are calling the quality as similar to 2005. Another legendary vintage, the 4th so called vintage of the century in the last 9 years? Really? We'll see. What's interesting is that everyone understands the concern of over-extraction. With high potential alcohols already, especially in merlot, extraction might be crucial in determining quality of the wine.
We'll see. Damn, thinking about how much money I want to set aside for 2009 En Primeur already.
