Reply to "Question about vintages and when to buy"

quote:
2000, 2001, 2003, and 2005 have all been praised by reviewers though not to the same extent.

I think 2000 and 2005 were praised even more highly than 2009. Don't know how 2001 got into that lineup either. The 2009 got hype because the vintage of the century is only supposed to come every 5 years and this one came after only 4, so the 2009 is a little anomalous.

Other than that, Joapepchi I don't get the question. Do you like any of the wines or do you know any of those wines? Do you know how they are when they're aged? What is "several years"? Why not buy a couple bottles of older vintages now and see if you even like the stuff? Would you buy a case or even a half case of a wine you don't know just because you read it was "supposed" to be extraordinary?

Bad move. If you don't know Bordeaux, you'll end up like those people who talk about it but don't really drink it. And if you buy some "name" wine from Bordeaux, you'll pay a nice piece of change.

Lots of wine from many places can age if you want to put something away for a few years.
