2009 Bordeaux Tasting, Just Fab

Last week was a great chance to taste close to 30 bottles of 2009 Bordeaux all at one go and surely a great experience for me, thanks to BBR. Here are some of the photos taken that night.  2009 you have everything, intense fruits, rich, velvet tannins, high alcohol but with great freshness.

I especially love Chateau Lafite ( of course! ); the soooo-perfumed, fat, sexy Chateau Léoville Poyferré which I just shamelessly kept going back to it;  the very charming Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron; the powerful Chateau Haut Brion; the pure and classy Chateau Haut Bailly and few others.

Not suprisingly, there was a crazy pileup of wine lovers at table No. 6 which starring the 3 kings: Lafite, Mouton and Latour.  Chateau Latour , somehow, was the most madly craved one (I felt its little closed though) amongst the 3, with a price tag of 10,000 Euro/case.

the powerful yet elegant Chateau Haut Brion, too bad they don’t have La Mission Haut Brion to go along side to catch up with their feminine side of HB

Latour was pretty closed during the tasting but am sure it’s gona be fab

Such a great night celebrating the lovely 2009 Bordeaux wine all together and I surely look forward to the next tasting of them in few years time.
