Old oak vs new. American oak vs French. Large format vs small. Now..... Oval amphora vs spherical* Where does it end

Actually, the very old white Bordeaux that I've had from the likes of Haut-Brion, Laville Haut-Brion, Domaine de Chevalier, and even some relatively obscure names, at 50-60-70 years, are to my taste greater than white Burgundies I've had at those ages -- just so much more complexity, depth, and freshness.And the white wines can' t compare to those of Burgundy - at least those that aren't knackered by the pox.
