2010 Bordeaux Futures and the US

I am already so sick of all the HYPE on the NEXT GREAT BORDEAUX VINTAGE  of 2010!. Wasn’t it just last year that the critics were calling 2009 the THE BEST VINTAGE EVER!, not to mention 2005, 2003, and 2000 all vintages with huge accolades. With all the technology now, will there ever be a bad vintage? Sure the weather has a big effect, but come on.  This is getting ridiculous now.  2009 was released as the most expensive vintage ever, and after what I’m reading, 2010 Bordeaux will be even higher.  Not for me, unless something is drastically mispriced.  My word of advice, is stick with the less heralded vintages both for investment and/or drinking.  2006/2008, and even 2009 if 2010 comes out too high, which most likely will be the case. Apparently the US retailers are still skeptical also:
