The only three verticals i had from notable length are:
Yquem:
50, 69, 71, 73, 75, 76, 82, 83, 85, 86, 88, 90

Moulin Touchais (Anjou/Coteaux du Layon):
45, 69, 70, 71, 75, 76, 85, 86, 89

Mouton Rothschild:
88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 97, 98, 99

Of course Yquem was my absolute favourite one (specially the 86, 75 and 83), but I was really surprised by the vitality and longlivity of the Moulin Touchais (specially the 70, 75 and 86). Mouton is never been my favourite wine and except for the 98 and a little bit the 89...

Santé,
Joe

It's not much, but I do still have some Andrew Will cabs, merlot, and vineyard designate going back in sequence to 1999. (The '97's and '98's are all gone. Frown)
Also have a '97-'99 Woodward Canyon Old Vines cab.

Mine are kind of small, but that's because I'm only starting them
I have Sociando-Mallet 2001, 2002, and arriving soon 2003.
Troplong Mondot 2001, 2003. I'll be buying the 1996 and 1998 soon.
I've started a Léoville Barton vertical with the 2004.

As I have previously said; collecting verticals is expensive, so I stopped! But now, I find that I've signed up for so many mailing lists over the past 5 years-------- that I'm collecting vertically again! Confused Mad

Latour - You're right! There are several wines I try every vintage, but if I'm not "collecting" them/keeping any around, then it doesn't count. Whew! These are the ones I'm trying to keep at least a bottle of every vintage:

Ch. Leoville Las Cases - '99-present
(my splurge vertical... soon adding '98, and '05 presumably, and thinking about some much older from auction)

Brancaia Ilatraia - '02-present
(new in 2002)

Ch. Mondorion - '00-present
(new in 2000)

And what the heck, I'll probably end up drinking the Mondorion... so really my only dedicated verticals are the Las Cases and Ilatraia. That's not so bad!

15 straight vintages (16 when I finally pull the trigger on the '03s) of Pichon Baron. I may not buy the '05s, the years are catching up to me. '92 and '97 are just singles.

BTW the vertical posted in this thread that I'd like to have is the Per Carlo. Not enough of that in my cellar.

Checked my list, I don't have any '91, so my vertical skips a year.

Like some around here, I just started cellaring a few years ago, but here's what I have and what I'm working on:

Bellefont-Belcier St-Émilion Grand Cru - 04, 05, 06
Lafon-Rochet St-Estèphe GCC - 04, 05, 06
Larose-Trintuadon Cru Boureois - 03, 04, 05 (02 are gone)

And some bottles will be added soon to those:

Gruaud-Larose St-Julien GCC - 04, 05, 06(soon)
Kirwan Margaux GCC - 75, 98, 01(soon), 06(soon)
Sociando-Mallet Haut-Médoc - 96, 01, 06 soon ?

Not for a few years, w+a. Last I had it it was mature, but hanging on nicely. Only one left, and am saving it for that damned vertical tasting that I never seem to be able to pull off!
