All that said, every wine penny I have saved, I am tempted to put into the 2009 red Burgs. Last vintage this good was 2005, and I wish I had bought more. Delicious now, and I bet these 2009's will improve with time and be more amazing later. But wait! I hear the 2010 is even better (but more "classic"?, i.e. not as rich). So I have to save some $$ for that too. Oh, the dilemma! Also, look for great deals on the 2008's - a pretty good vintage for both reds and whites - which may be getting dumped on the market at great discounts due to all the frenzy around 2009 and soon 2010.
In a month, La Paulee is coming to San Francisco, and the Grand Tasting will be all about 2009 Burgundy. At $300 entry, I still think it's a deal, considering the wines that will be poured. For anyone serious about Burgundy, good luck trying to get in. Note: for more info on La Paulee, see my post on the La Paulee 2010.
