In recent years, Bordeaux has taken hyperbole to the limit.

First we had the hype surrounding the Millennium vintage, 2000. Then we had 2005, with its stories of vignerons in tears as the grapes came in, such was the quality of the “vintage of the decade.”

The 2009 vintage perhaps outstripped them all, with a level of interest in many respects unprecedented.

Well guess what? With the grapes picked, 2010 is shaping up to be a very good vintage indeed. Which is good news or bad news depending on your view of these things.
