Get Matt Kramer's Burgundy book. That information is in there.

"When I lived in Paris, and champagne was relatively cheap, I always enjoyed a half-bottle in the middle of the morning and another half-bottle at six or so in the evening. It did me a tremendous amount of good." - Gerald Hamilton.

For very old vintages the best resource is Michael Broadbent.

I second that. The book is called "The Great Vintage Wine Book". It has tasting notes on wines back to the 18th century.

Great book. The new book is called "Vin­tage Wine: Fifty Years of Tasting Three Centuries of Wines". This was released a couple of years ago, I believe. The version Mark mentions may be slightly better for older wines, as Broadbent has dropped notes on some wines he hasn't tasted recently in the newest release. On the other hand, some of the vintage ratings have changed slightly with ten years evolution and additional tasting.

Great book. Highly opinionated, but a helluva lot of fun to read (and largely on the mark, to my taste).

It is, sorry to say, out of print and trading for north of $100 at places like Amazon and such. If you find one at a price that is reasonable to you, snap it up.

I keep hoping it will go back into print, as has Making Sense of Wine, or be updated, as has Making Sense of California Wine.
