For most wine consumers, vintage shouldn’t matter. After all, the vast majority of bottles sold are of the under-$10 variety (the average sale is $6.42, according to Nielsen), where brand is vastly more important than vintage and some wines don’t carry a vintage designation. (Watch out, though, for that discounted 2007 chardonnay that’s been gathering dust under fluorescent lights for several years. Or Beaujolais Nouveau of any vintage.)
