Robert Parker's Vintage Chart 2000-2007
Above find our Wine Advocate Vintage Guide for the last seven vintages. Vintage charts should be regarded as a very general overall rating slanted in favor of what the finest producers were capable of producing in a particular viticultural region. Such charts are often filled with exceptions to the rule: astonishingly good wines from skillful or lucky vintners in years rated mediocre and thin; diluted, characterless wines from incompetent or greedy producers in great years. However, knowing what the best vintages are does make a difference, and stacks the odds in favor of the consumer who is choosing from a restaurant's wine list or going into a wine shop totally blind. Print and take along the next time you buy wine. Enjoy!
