There sure seem to be a lot to choose from. Best I can tell they are as good as the '05's but they are also accessible. A lot of the wines are nice now (with a 2 hour decant), but they will age well too. Recently had an '09 Lilian Ladouy (St. Estephe, $25) and it was exceptional, even @ 14% ABV), and I just recommended a "Wine of the Week", the '09 La Lande Belair, Bordeaux, $10, 13% ABV). I have had a lot of nice wines from Cotes de Castillon. A good rule of thumb would be to buy anything above the regional Bordeaux AOC, though there are exceptions. Look for Bourg, Blaye, Cotes de Bordeaux, and the St. Emilion satellites. Unfortunately the classified wines are out of sight, but there always will be plenty of affordable "Cru Bourgeois", and St. Emilion Grand Cru.
