Default TN: Good MSR and Sicilian wines, ok Bdx and BdM, dull Loire

I don't really have a rule. I've had lovely 20 year olds from top traditional producers (especially Soldera).I often drink pretty young. But the '99s as a whole had some pretty firm tannins when they came out, it's a shame if one must drink through tannins to still have fruit.
