I don't think you'll find a lot of support in <i>this</i> forum for the "Older is Better" theory.

When you think of the best wines you have every tasted is it a '02 chard tasted in '04, an '01 cab tasted in '05 or a 20 year old Bordeaux? I am with you Robin on most things but you have to stop making crazy statements, whoops, guess that is a matter of palate preference, sorry.

Walt, You're right. We don't want our "Grand Poo-bah" to become intellectually sloppy.
My problem is that I have not had the opportunity to taste many old wines. Primarily because my pocket book objects to it. I can't really talk intelligently about the subject. I'm limited to what is currently available for the most part. I would guess that 80% of the board is in the same situation. That doen't mean that I don't enjoy reading notes about older wines. I find the posts by Francois Audouze very interesting.
