I admit it: I did it. I gave into the hype. I bought some 2009 Bordeaux futures. But I’m not like the zillion other people that are pre-buying these wines. Many people do it for speculation. Yuck. I’m going to keep mine and enjoy them. In, say, 2025. Sigh.
Because I am very partial to Right Bank wines, I opted for some St Emilions to hold and savor and a Côtes du Castillon for more immediate consumption. Here’s what I ordered:
- Cap de Faugeres
- Chateau Fombrage
- Fleur Cardinale
- Chateau Pavie-Macquin
- Pagodes de Cos
I’m excited. This is my maiden voyage into the vast world of buying futures. I like to think I didn’t get too carried away. But only time, and lots of it, will tell.
