Since the arrival of the acclaimed 2009 vintage, I have been repeatedly asked "I hear the 2010s might be even better, when will you have those?" The vintage's top wines will not be available until around this time next year but, today we are offering a stunning value from Bordeaux's extremely hyped 2010 growing season. Critical acclaim for both vintages has caused some to hesitate purchasing 2009s and hold out for next year's release. With not so glowing reviews of Bordeaux 2011, I would have to advise that consumers purchase the amazing values from both 2009 and 2010 before they are gone.
We have offered a number of inexpensive, high quality (and highly rated) examples from 2009. The Chateau Hyot Cotes de Castillion was the first 90 rated 2010 we could get our hands on. It was rated 90 points in the Wine Spectator by James Molesworth, he noted that it is "ripe...with fresh acidity and sleek tannins." It is an easy drinking style that will be sure to please over the next few years. Empire is offering it at a fantastic discount from its $17 release price for only $13.95 with FREE SHIPPING when you purchase by the case!
