Time for another retrospective?

We did a few early last year that I thought were fun and informative. How about an early 10 year look at one of the following this month? A hot year all around, so it will be interesting to see how the wines of the world are progressing from the 2003 vintage.

Surely better saved for an off-line.
CdP/Rhone would be a good one. Would have added it but too late now as I would reset the pol and cancel some votes out, which would be very undemocratic of me.
the 2003 bordeauxs are just not fun to drink now.

still trying to shed the baby fat

the 2003 cali cabs i've had are just dumb. oaky and umm oaky with some fruit hiding in the back.

Though, personally i think it's time for an 83/85 Port retrospective as these suckers are approaching 30 years and are typically affordable to all. ;-)

So what is your vote? Confused

That was mwg's mini-retrospective. He's done..... Off to confuse us in other threads.

Bordeaux showing strong support in the late night hours. Other fine ideas offered as well. Good thing we have 12 months (or 51 more weeks, 360 more days) left this year to have as many online off-lines as we want. I'll close the polls at 6 on Sunday for this one. That should give plenty of us a chance to vote.

Aren't 2003 Bordeauxs and Cali cabs the same thing? Banana

I vote for 1988 Bordeaux, 2001 Bordeaux or 88 or 90 Champagne.


2001 Bordeaux seems to be in a good spot now.


Big +1


+2
Well, the results are in and the force appears strong with Bordeaux. Let's hope the Bordelais do not see this and take it as an excuse to once again raise prices to intolerable levels (too late?). A thread will be started in Tasting Notes so that those that choose to can share in this online off-line and express how some 2003's have developed. It was good to see other valid suggestions that hopefully will take shape as the year ticks away. Can you really have too many of these communal experiences?

Confused...Bordeaux has 35% of the vote, and other has 27%.

Strong Bordeaux? Seems 65% voted against Bordeaux to me. Wink

So, what is your proposal... 2003 Bordeaux?
