The annual Fete du Bordeaux at The Four Seasons restaurant in New York in October, where six examples of the 2009 vintage were tasted. Restaurant in New York owners Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini brought in three notable Bordeaux vignerons, Anthony Barton of Chateaux Leoville Barton and Langoa Barton, Jean-Charles Cazes of Chateaux Lynch- Bages and Les Ormes-de-Pez, and Nicolas Glumineau of Chateaux Montrose and Tronquoy Lalande. Words like "spectacular," "awesome" and "magnificent" have been branded for bottles that will not even be in Restaurant in New York till next spring or summer. They said the same in the year 2005 and some who have tasted barrel samples of 2010 in the restaurant in New York are using the stronger superlatives for them. Bordeaux prices in the restaurant in New York are already at all-time highs — even the mediocre 2006 and 2007 vintages were expensive.
