Reply to "56' & 57' Vintage?"

Well, it wasn't originally clear whether you thought the '57 Lynch-Bages was quality, but you've clarified that.

I decided to pull out some texts to see if anyone rated the '57 Lynch-Bages. I had to go back to the 1991 editions of Parker and Broadbent, but they both had good things to say about the wine in 1991. Broadbent gave it "at best three stars but risky", and Parker gave it 88 points. Not bad for an off vintage wine...

While the books were out, I thought I'd check what they said about a couple other wines. For the '57 La Mission Haut-Brion, Broadbent gave it "four stars will keep" and Parker gave it 93 points. Glancing in the California section of Broadbent's book, he gave the '56 Charles Krug Vintage Selection cab five stars...
