Flummoxed as to whether 2014 or 2015 is the better buy for your Bordeaux bucks? Was 1969 a good year in the Rhone? You can Google it, or you can just put the Drinkhacker Wine Cheat Sheet in your wallet or purse, to make it easy to figure out what wine is worth your while. Just print, cut it out, fold it into thirds, and you’re good for another year until we update the cheat sheet again.
As always, here’s how to use the cheat sheet: Only the last two digits of a year are included to save space, and the list only rarely reaches back into the pre-WWII era, so anything you see starting with a zero or one is from the 2000s.
All years listed here are considered good to great vintages, but those in green with underlining are the cream of the crop, “classic” years that you should consider the very best on the market. (Why green and underlined? So you can tell the difference whether you use a color or black & white printer.)
Check back next October for the next revision of the cheat sheet!
