Thunevin Bad Boy 2005 & 2006 - When to drink ?

Seeing that Bad Boy 2005 was available to buy via the Systembolaget to-order range for 199 SEK, I asked Jean-Luc Thunevin about the drinking windows for the 2005 and 2006 vintages. This is what he said :

"2005 is certainly more powerful than 2006, but both can be cellared for at least 10 to 15 years. 2006 being made from a blend of 3 terroirs, is more fruit foward and will open earlier. Still, you could drink both now but I recommend to decant them for at least 1 hour, especially 2005."
