How was 1995 Grange, WIML? Oldest I’ve had was 17, and it was a bit disappointing (2001 Grange at Montreal offline in 2018; it was outshone by 01 Dead Arm, among others). I’ve been offered some well-stores older Grange but I’ve never bitten.

VM, I still have 3, plus a pair each of 2002 and 2005. I’ll open them sooner rather than later, I think. (I have the 05s because our long absent friend King of Hearts asked me to get a 6-pack for him, but then he split up with his Seattle love and I never saw him again. Too bad for him, in both respects 😁 Anyway, no problem for me to enjoy these!)

I love old Grange.  First time I had 1993 Grange was about 5 or 6 years ago and it was a “holy sh%t” moment, that made me understand why these wines cost a fortune.  Grange ( like most hermitages) need a lot of time. Surprised to hear that the 1995  was disappointing- that’s a shame.  2002 was a huge year- way too young to drink unless you decant it for an eternity, but should be a 100pt wine by the time it comes around.  2005 was another big year.
