2009 Bordeaux – Robert Parkerâ€™s â€śMagical 20â€ť
â€śI have chosen estates that produce wines of first growth quality…Consequently, they are under-valued and very smart acquisitions.â€ť
Hi from Matt,
Considered by some to be the most significant event benchmarking Bordeaux Chateaux since the original 1855 classification, last week Robert Parker lead a Grand Tasting of what he describes as â€śThe Magical 20″ â€“ twenty Bordeaux Chateau that he considers to be of â€śFirst Growth Qualityâ€ť.Â As Parker said where the tasting was held; â€śI have chosen estates that produce wines of first growth quality, although technically not first growths. Consequently, they are under-valued and very smart acquisitions.â€ť
Hi from Matt,
We have just landed our shipment of Bordeaux from the 2008 vintage that Robert Parker describes as â€śclassic and outstanding wines that represent excellent value.â€ť
The wines came direct from Chateau, were trucked and shipped in a refrigerated container and are now safely resting in our temperature controlled cellar.Â As lovingly-shipped imports, direct from Chateau they are well-priced and are in perfect condition.
