Premier Cru 09 Bdx

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has received their 09 futures from PC?

As you have guessed, I haven't. None yet.

Here's what I ordered, so I'm curious if anyone has received any of them:

- Pontet Canet
- Pichon Baron
- Roc (Cotes de Castillon)
- St. Paul

I'm too worried about the latter two as I dont expect prices to change much, but I've purchased the former two at pre Parker spike in ratings.

Thanks!

Hahaha, that's pretty funny.

I wouldn't ever buy from them, it would make me crazy. I'm pretty sure they're still delivering 2005s! I'm too lazy, but there's a long thread about this.

I just recieved my 2009 Bordeaux futures from k+L. You might be waiting awhile since you ordered from premier cru. I have recieved my 2009 Cdp futures from premier cru though.

pretty much what grossie said.

i would be shocked if you received those wines this year, and very surprised if you received them next year.

PC is famous for this. Attractive pricing, and absolutely no guarantee of when your wine will be delivered.

Do some searching on the forum and you'll find some threads about people still waiting for 05 and 06 Bordeaux.

They have delivered most of my 2006 BDX. I am still waiting on a case for that year. To their benefit, their prices are good and they delivered other 2006 BDX that I ordered just recently. However, the wait is LONG, expect your 2009 to arrive by 2015 or 2016.

Maybe it has not been bottled yet! Wink

You see... with some vendors the vintage is not the year of harvest, but the year of planting the grapes. Didn't you know?
