Explore our selection of wines that are from the exceptional 2009 vintage. 2009 is exceptional for many reasons. First of all, it is probably the only vintage that was looking fully ready to drink during the primeur tastings. It was also looking ready to drink just after the bottlering. And this vintage has never closed. It's a vintage that was ready to drink from the start to the end. High concentration, low acidity level.
This vintage has also some exceptional wines for long aging, mainly on the best soils. For example, you could keep long most of the first and second classified growths and they will have no lack of freshness during the tasting. But most of the Bordeaux red wines from 2009 vintage were made to be drink young.
