TuaRita: Better yet, bring the 1995 to Amsterdam at the end of November and join our Cos d'Estournel OL!

BTW, the '85 and '95 are at the top of the list for vintages to add to my Cos collection!

Chateau Leoville Barton;
’82,’83,’84,’85,’86,’87’88,’89,’90,’91,’92,’93,
’94,’95,’96,’97,’98,’99,’00,’01, (the ’02 & ‘03 “en primeurs” are in the pipeline).


Chateau Citran; I Had the last 1982 one year ago it was in splendid condition.
’83,’84,’85,’86,’87,’88,’89,’90,’91,’92,’93,’94,
’95,’96,’97,’98,’99,’00,’01,’02(the latter is just delivered). 2003 “en primeur” is in the pipeline.

Several cru Bourgois Chateaux from ’89 to ’01 (and ’02 “en primeurs” ordered)

Some Barolo producers. But my favourite producers did not make Barolo in some “off vintages” But in my opinion they are complete verticals because the years I don’t own are the vintages the producers skipped.

Tanuta St’ Agnese (=Fanetti) Vino Nobile de Montepulciano;
’85,’86,’87,’88,’89,’90,’91,’92,’93,’94,’95,’96,’97,’98, and ’99

Hermitage Cave “Tain Hermitage”; Same producer but from different plots. (so not realy a vertical)
’87’88,’89,’90,’91,’92,’93,’94,’95,’96,’97,’98,
’99,’00,’01,

Roland

I don't have any really long verticals. The best I can do is that I've tasted every vintage of Insignia since '94.

I stopped buying verticals 7 years ago (except for Tresor) and now only buy selections based on score and value! Sometimes I throw value out the window. Smile Also, the verticals which I still have----well they now have a lot of holes in them, and more each year, especially those from the 70's! Smile
Tresor 89,90,91,92,93,94,95,96,97,98, and 99
Dominus 85,86,87,88,89,94,95,96,98
Las Cases--all 70's gone-82,86,89,90,92
Pichon Lalande--all 70's gone-82,83,85,86,89,90, and 94.

Latour, nice , to bad you elected not to buy the 95 & 96 pichon lalande, those are the best vintages of the 90's and the best since the 82 and 86. I have the 89,94,95,96,97,98 and 00. passed on the 99 as it was weak. At present I will not buy a wine that does not show well just to keep a vertical going. To me one or two of each year is not my idea of a vertical Each year should have depth, like six bottles of each vintage, that's my idea of a vertical.

I have tended not to purchase verticals but more samplings of different producers and varietals as I am still learning about different wines and have tried to expand what I purchase.

However looking at the cellar report I find:

Carruades de Lafite 1998-2002 (futures on order)

Due to drinking them already Smile, the Chardonnay list is a bit shorter:
Kistler McCrea, Dutton, Durrell Chardonnay 2000-2002 (on order)
Gary Farrell Westside, Rochioli Chardonnay 2000-2002

Not a real vertical (yet). But I do have...

1995 Fuligni BdM
1997 Fuligni BdM
1999 Fuligni BdM

One of my ideas for our honeymoon in Tuscany was to start a vertical by buying a few bottles of 1 wine from the wineries we visited. Fuligni is on it's way, Costanti BdM and Altesino BdM just have the 1999. I'm not going to bother w/ Terrabianca.

I would love to have that vertical. The '98 was released several years ago here, and now they've skipped forward to the 2001. Nothing in between. Booo.

Ah well, I'll be buying as much 2001 as I can afford when it comes out. Both the 2000 and 2001 were outstanding when I tasted them in Italy.

This thread caused me to check my spreadsheet of wine inventory to look for verticals and I was quite surprised by what I found:

Tignanello
1994-2000

Quilceda Creek
1995-2000

Dominus
1996-2000

Leoville Barton
1994-2003

Smith-Haut-Lafitte
1996-2001

Dead Arm
1997-2002

In a couple of cases above, the verticals are not 100% complete, as I am missing one or two weaker vintages. For example, I don't have the 1997 Leoville Barton on Smith-Haut-Lafitte.

Reading this thread, I feel like I just pulled up to a highway rest stop at night and finding a dozen guys with their pants down with a ruler in hand... Razz

Ahem, for me the longest vertical I have is 4 vintages of Finca Dofi and Clos Mogador (1996, 1998, 2000, 2001) and four vintages of Quilceda Creek (1998-2001).

d'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz - 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002
Costanti Brunello di Montalcino - 1997, 1998, 1999
Masi Serego Aligheri Amarone Vaio Armaron - 1996, 1997, 1998
Rocca della Macie Roccato - 1997, 1998, 1999

Other stuff only has two consecutive vintages, so they don't really count.

Other than the Fonseca vertical that LadyR already mentioned, the Roots' verticals are pretty crappy. We'll have to put more effort in that! Wink
But we do have a nice horizontal of 20+ 2000 VP's... Roll Eyes
