Bordeaux’s World Cup ‘2009 v 2005’
Saturday 12 June 2010
On June 11, with all eyes soon to be on the 2010 FIFA's World Cup first matches, Bordeaux winos have caught the fever.
The wine blog Bauduc posted more insights into En Premier (wine futures) Bordeaux 2009 in comparison to Bordeaux 2005 in honor of the World Cup, The Big Match: Bordeaux 2009 v 2005 - a Buyer's Guide .
The "Big Match" scores and compares 175 Bordeaux wines from both the 2009 and 2005 vintages using ratings from Robert M. Parker, Jr., the voice of wine, Jancis Robinson, wine guru, and the blogger and Chateau Bauduc owner Gavin Quinney.
2009 is a clear winner if you tally up all the * which signify Parker's opinion that the wine is the ‘best ever'.
