this is a dual question actually.

say i find a 2005 chardonnay thats in the $10-15 dollar range on the shelf.

2005 was a really good year for chard but its 2010.

the general rule that i have been told/read is 3 years tops in such cases.

would the wine be that deteriorated?

the 2nd question would of be course are wines that fall into that price range worth trying to age?

or even are they meant to age beyond a few years?

 As a general rule, no, they're not worth aging. You might get an exception every now and then, but most budget wines are not worth aging.
