As I taste wines and make tasting notes I also update the vintage charts and vintage reports. The vintage reports cover recent vintages, as they develop towards maturity. The vintage reports are based on all my experience with the vintage in question, and not only the bottles mentioned in the tasting notes here on this site.
As with all vintage charts .. this represents the vintage on average – and the maturity of the individual wines will depend on both producer, the terroir and level + the vintage. For a detailed explanation of the vintage chart – check the bottom of this page.
Always remember – keep the great wines for maturing – they do offer even a small part of the potential when they are young.
