Sure thing, but before that, some added bottles/info on '71, '83, '85, '86 and '89 that I have recalled:
'71 - How could I have forgotten the '71 Pétrus? Supposedly a middling vintage for Pétrus, the bottle I enjoyed a little less than 2 years ago was sublime, complex and incredibly well-balanced. I’d be in no rush with this wine as it has the structure to age even more.
'83 - Palmer last had 16 August 2008, ex-château, very elegant with great finesse. Could use just a little bit more heft/presence mid-mouth, but that’s picking nits. Lafite Rothschild excellent; wouldn’t bother to wait longer on this. Very nice Rieussec and a surprisingly leaner (but still excellent) Yquem.
'85 - The 2 Pape Cléments I opened around 1-½ years ago were excellent.
'86 - Cos d’Estournel is sublime. Buy this and enjoy. I’ve had the Gruaud Larose twice and have been underwhelmed both times.
'89 - Palmer, last had on 18 October 2008, ex-château, excellent and can age more. Ducru Beaucaillou, last had 10th March 2009, very good if just a touch faded, I’d drink up relatively quickly. Siran is mature and drinking very well now and I’d drink up; if from magnum, can still go a few more years but I wouldn’t bother to wait. Trotanoy could hold longer because it has good structure, but, as a whole, I wasn’t impressed when I had it last in February 2007. Calon Ségur, while nice until around 2001, succeeding bottles have been consistently tired since. The Figeac I had in early 2005 was already tired.
Now to the '90s:
'90 - Pauillacs have been particularly luscious in the past year. Excellent now and can still hold easily for 5-10+ more years are the Latour, Pichon Baron, Léoville Poyferré, Lynch Bages. Also luscious now but I wouldn’t bother further ageing is Grand Puy Lacoste. Haut Brion, La Mission Haut Brion, Figeac and Cheval Blanc are incredibly good as well. Pichon Lalande was nice, but not impressive. The last Montrose I had (sometime in early 2008 I believe) seemed on the cusp of decline, but previous bottles make me think that last one was unduly advanced. The last Calon Ségur I had in 2007 was already noticeably tiring. Cos d’Estournel is excellent and can last quite a few more years. Troplong Mondot was going very strong last I had it late 2005.
The Filhot is amazing.
'91 - I can’t remember if I ever had any Bdx from this vintage. Probably not.
'92 - La Fleur-Pétrus 4th July 2008 was surprisingly good for such a maligned vintage, I’d buy some if I could get it for, say, $75, but not a cent more than that. Margaux on the 10th March 2009 had a most alluring bouquet but my notes state: “The bouquet, however, was the best the wine had (left?) to give, as it was sadly thin and diffuse on the palate - giving up more drying cedar than any fruit or ghosts thereof.”
'93 - I used to keep many Lascombes as a house red until around 1998 or 1999, but, thereafter, it was no longer palatable. Surprisingly good despite the vintage were the Batailley and Palmer, both on 4th July 2008. I’d buy these if offered at around $75-$80 just to show others not to just swallow general vintage assesments hook, line and sinker.
'94 - Enjoyed many VCCs and a few La Conseillantes back in 2000-2003, but have not been able to try them since. Within the past 10 months, the Angelus, Léoville las Cases, Pontet Canet and La Mission Haut Brion have been surprisingly good, while the Haut Brion is excellent. The Latour I last had on the 15th June 2006 and it showed the green/unripeness the vintage is generally known for - never bothered to have it again.
'95 - Pichon Lalande is very good and, at the last vertical I attended sometime last year, I even ranked it higher than the '96, '85 and '89. Cheval Blanc is also quite good but seems to still be pretty reluctant (last had January 2008 in magnum). Calon-Ségur I can’t really say as the last one I had (beside the mentioned '95 Cheval Blanc, also in magnum) was mildly corked. Mouton Rothschild, Léoville las Cases and Montrose still taste too young for me - sometimes I wonder if that’s all there is to them.
'96 - I’ve enjoyed many from this vintage over the past year or so though they are still quite young: Léoville Poyferré, Montrose, Gruaud Larose, Cheval Blanc, Cos d’Estournel, Lynch Bages, Rauzan Ségla, Pichon Baron and Pichon Lalande, among others. Over a small dinner that featured a horizontal of the five 1855 first growths '96s on 29th June 2008, I’d say not to bother touching these for another 5-7 years. Same goes for the LLC. La Mondotte, however, is already roaring out of the bottle. If you want a relatively inexpensive treat, go for some of this vintage’s Pagodes de Cos and de Fieuzal. I’d hold the Haut-Bailly a few more years to see what happens because they aren’t very interesting yet. Drinking superbly is Domaine de Chevalier (I love this wine at its very reasonable price). Yquem is still very young. Reasonably good at their prices are Rieussec, de Fargues and Guiraud.
'97 - Some nice, inexpensive, casual drinking Bdx here. Some from the past year that are fairly good at their prices have been Grand Puy Lacoste, LLC, Cos d’Estournel and Léoville Barton. La Mondotte’s '97 is a relatively cheap way to enjoy Stephan’s revenge - bought and drank 2 bottles in mid-2007, nice enough, but I’ve decided that La Mondotte isn’t really my style.
'98 - The Haut Brion was already drinking surprisingly well last June 2007 and has a long life ahead I expect. Forget Latour for around 4-5 more years. Right banks are already very enjoyable, if not particularly intellectual: Pavie, La Mondotte, Canon-la-Gaffelière, La Couspaude, Le Bon Pasteur (yeah, yeah, I know), Cheval Blanc, Ausone. The only '98 right bank I’ve had that has struck me as a serious /intellectual wine has been the L’Evangile (around 2 months ago) which has a long life ahead of it. Troplong Mondot was quite disappointing when I opened one around 2 years ago - likely too young at the time. The Siran I had last Saturday was quite good, especially at its price. The Les Forts was already drinking very well whan I had it last in mid-May 2008.
'99 - I’ve been enjoying a lot of these generally easy drinking, modestly-priced Bdx the past year. e.g., Lynch Bages, Léoville Poyferré, Malescot St Exupery, Grand Puy Lacoste, Siran and Branaire Ducru. Serious wines from this year that, in my personal opinion, shouldn’t be touched for at least 3 more years are Margaux (my favorite 1st growth of this vintage), Latour, Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, LLC and Montrose. Amazingly, the Ausone I had in mid-2005 was already stunning, but I haven’t had it since so it is possible that it may have shut down already. The Le Pin is very good for the vintage, but its price is absolutely ridiculous. Cheval Blanc is excellent for the vintage and, I find, reasonably priced for what it is. Gruaud Larose, Ducru Beaucaillou and Canon-la-Gaffelière have been very disappointing for me. Pavie is luxurious, if lacking in elegance.
'00 - Still very young (even crus bourgeois like Siran and Sociando Mallet and top-growth 2nds like Le Petit Cheval and Carruades de Lafite) and I’ve had very many. Watch out for the Figeac.
'01 - For my tastes, good chx are still too young. That said, in my experience over the past year or so, with an hour or so aeration, the Les Forts, Léoville Poyferré and Canon-la-Gaffelière are already very enjoyable.
‘02 - Haven’t really tried this vintage, just a handful of reds which haven’t interested me. Sauternes’ de Fargues and Yquem, though, were pretty good.
'03 - Tried a few, but generally all way too young for me to really enjoy. From those I’ve had, I see that this Bdx vintage is not to my taste. But that’s just me.
'04 - I like this vintage for Pessac Léognan. Tasted through many them in June 2007; to see some of my notes on these, click on this. Generally, I find '04 Bdx more to my taste than '03. Still quite young, but I’d guess they’ll be ready to drink in another 3 years. haven’t tried any of the 1st growths of this vintage.
'05 - Tasted through most of the top growths in July 2006 and again in May 2008. They are way too young for me to enjoy. Many seemed to have shut down in last May’s Vinexpo in HK. That said, of the '05 top growths, I predict Margaux will be the most elegant and Latour will be the most serious. Mouton Rothschild is monstrous. La Mondotte as well. Haven’t tried Haut Brion though.
'06 - Tasted through them in Vinexpo 2007 Bdx. The right bank easily trounced the left, in my opinion. Notables were La Conseillante, Figeac, Canon-la-Gaffelière and Clinet.
'07 & '08 - I haven’t tried any from these vintages.
