I am just getting my first impressions of the highly anticipated 2009 vintage in Bordeaux. It may not prove to be as great as 2005 in terms of across-the-board quality, but I have already found some undeniably great wines. Today I drove up the Médoc to taste at some of the famous châteaus, including Cos-d'Estournel, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Giscours, Latour, Léoville-Las-Cases, Léoville-Barton, Malescot-St.-Exupery, Margaux, Palmer, Pichon-Longueville-Baron and Rauzan-Ségla.
