Still waiting

The 2008 futures campaign still carries on slowly and we are still waiting for… Parker’s notes. They are scheduled for April 28/29 ( ?)
In the meantime, the vines are growing quickly and the 2009 vintage will be in the barrels in 6 months!
The 2007 are in deficit and a few 2008 will be considered in the future as good deals. For instance, La Conseillante was released today and seems to me that it will be the top brand from the Right Bank, and especially Pomerol, sold at an attractive price. It will perhaps be one of the wines we don’t get enough allocations (in addition with the 1st growths), like for Léoville Barton, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
