Default The curse of a seven year

as its ****ing down with rain here in the UK and my golf is cancelled, I
kept thinking of what a bad year this may well be for N europe vintages, and
it brought to mind the 77 claret vintage. So I went to Broadbent and looked
at his Bordeaux vintage assessments back to 1877.

And then as it is still raining look at the 5's and 6's

1877 ** 1876 * 1875 *****
1887 *** 1886 *** 1885 no star
1897 * 1896 **** 1895 *****
1907 ** 1906 *** 1905 ***
1917 ** 1916 ** 1915 no star
1927 * 1926 ***** 1925 no star
1937 ** 1936 * 1935 *
1947 ***** 1946 no star 1945 *****
1957 * 1956 no star 1955 ****
1967* 1966 **** 1965 no star
1977 no star 1976 *** 1975 ***
1987 ** 1986 **** 1985 *****
1997 ** 1996 *** 1995 ***
2007 say * 2006 *** 2005 *****


total 25* 36* 39*

and no, I am not doing the rest, its brightening up and the battered garden
beckons.
