Only bought the ‘16 vintage.

Just opened a ‘93 for lunch today, tasted like 10 years younger than it should be, excellent vintage for this wine.

Re: Top vintage for red Bordeaux 1980 - 1999

I would vote 1998 right bank, given the option. Yes Mark - In 1998 right bank, I have Magdelaine, Trotanoy, Petrus, VCC and l’Evangile. What else should I seek?

Re: How good is the 2005 Burgundy vintage

I feel 2005 is in the excellent-outstanding range but struggle to see in GOAT territory. To me, the finesse, purity and transparency in 2010, the best 2016s and probably 1999s trump 2005. This is my view as well. I think 2010 is easily the best vintage since I’ve started seriously drinking burgundy...
