Comments:  I think the non-Burgundy wines dominated because of their bright fruit flavors.  The more subtle and subdued Burgundys are all too young and will need at least five years before they start to show well.  Ideally, a well-structured Burgundy will be at its best in the 15 to 20 year range and beyond.
