  1. hmmm why do I think 2013 won't be declared the "Vintage of the Century?"

      But yields were very low for 2013 (i.e. we had to dump most of the rubbish crop just to obtain something vaguely drinkable), and it is very approachable in its youth (i.e. not built to last) while you wait for your 2005s and 2008s to emerge (if they ever do...)

      I received the above spiel from a merchant yesterday. Cheeky buggers - there's always a way to spin it!
