Locale: Haarlem, Netherlands
Favorite region: Burgundy, Bordeaux, Northern Rhone, Port region
Dream wine: 1959 Mouton-Rothschild; perfection in every way
Wine lover for appr. 40 years. Once in the mid eighties winner with my team of the yearly Prix St. Hubert.
I possess a cellar of 1600-1700 bottles; mostly French (Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone) Vintage Port and very old Cognac; also some lovely Italian, Spanish, German and Australian bottles. I have a large collection of '52's Bordeaux/Burgundy (my year of birth), as of '53 (my wife's year of birth). I write wine articles and I organize Master Classes. For me cellartracker will defeat the individual global wine tasters due its collectivity and the high level of numerous tasting notes.

I am having a hard time believing the scores I am seeing for wines that years ago were good but not great. (Second-third growths) I am however going to have to follow your path and pick up a couple bottles. How long are you going to age the wine you mentioned?
