There are few better ways to celebrate a year that was special to you than by drinking a wine made in that year, from grapes which lived and experienced the rain, the wind and the sun of that year, and which therefore reflect that year more profoundly than any other souvenir.
You can of course watch television clips, read newspaper articles or listen to music from your special year, and this will no doubt bring back vivid memories. But wine is a living memory, a REAL experience of the conditions of that vintage. There can be no more soulful way to relive a specific period in time.
But of course not all wines will taste great after 40, 50 or more years. And different vintages were strong or weak in different wine regions.
