Thuning Up The Palate - Bordeaux Day 2
Here we are in Bordeaux once again! As I sit here with some (extremely rare) spare time, trying to recall what little French I can, it feels good to be back for my third go-round of en primeurs tastings. Especially so considering that there has already been a lot of talk about the 2009 vintage as compared to my previous two trips for the '07 and '08 vintages. These should prove to be an excellent reference point going into this highly touted (and frankly heavily hyped) vintage.
