WINE VINTAGE CHART
A wine vintage chart is a handy tool but its important to recognize the associated limitations. We suggest you take the generalizations of a vintage chart with more than a grain of salt. Excellent wines and great bargains often come from "off-vintages." The buying trips we take are to taste the wines of the most recent vintage. From these trips we pick the best wines available from the exceptional growers with whom we work.
We think the best use for a wine vintage chart is as an aging guide but even here the generalizations of the chart can do you a disservice.
