Carlsonjok and Albatrossity2,

Back in the early 1990s, on the advice of a friend, I put away a few bottles of Margaux.  I finally opened a 1989 Prieure-Lichine last year and it was fabulous. I have a couple of 1988s that I am eyeing laviciously and a 2001 that I just stored away.

My tasting notes indicate that we had the 1949, 1953, 1955, 1959 and 1961. The '49 and '53 were stunning,


Of course you must now realise that I hate you both with envy inspired passion that borders on the holy!  :angry:

Well, if it is any consolation, I lucked into them.  I had no idea what I was buying. I just did it, as I said, on advice.  FWIW, I also bought a 1987, which is considered a pretty poor vintage.  I only wish I had been into wine when the 2000 were released.  Those are supposed to be classics.

Also FWIW, I was green with envy at the vertical tasting Albatrossity did.  I am probably not enough of an oneophile to truly appreciate such an opportunity, but I sure wouldn't turn it down either.  I really need some rich friends like that.  Unfortunately, most of our friends are broke-ass horse people who like wine from a box and think Michelob is a high-end beer.
