Choosing a wine for yourself or to offer can make one's head spin! The vintages fall neatly in line but are nothing alike; the wines themselves are the best illustration of this.

For each vintage an average rating is given, taking into account the quality of the wines produced in that year. This rating is only an average and it is difficult to make generalizations. Some prestigious estates like Petrus, Mouton Rothschild, Latour or Haut Brion rely on their savoir-faire, their terroir and their high standards to break from the pack.

Inversely, exceptional vintages like 1945, 1969, 1982 or 1990 are advantageous for all of the wines made in that year.

The information on this vintage chart could be a good starting point to help you narrow down your search.
