Château Lafite Rothschild--Vintage 2000 In two six-bottle original wooden cases (12) "Cask sample tasted March 2001: opaque, intense purple rim; crisp, fragrant, pronounced Cabernet Sauvignon aroma and flavour; sweet, wonderfully ripe, fleshy, extended, with dry leathery tannic finish. (****) Great wine with a long life ahead. " MB, Vintage Wine Château Mouton Rothschild--Vintage 2000 In original wooden case (12) "Cask sample at the château, March 2001, with Hervé Berland: very deep, velverty; dark bramble colour; scent of bitter violets, taut fruit and iron; dry, full, hard, concentrated. Impressive but not as sensuously exotic as the '89 or '90 at the same stage. Tasted at the Ch Mouton (*****) A long life ahead. " MB, Vintage Wine Château Latour--Vintage 2000 In original wooden case (12) "Cask sample tasted March 2001 at the château: very deep, velvety, opaque core, with intese purple rim; dumb at first, rich, spicy, violets, very Cabernet; full, hard, spicy, tannic. Denser tannins and higher acidity than the '99. (*****) Long life. " MB, Vintage Wine Château Margaux--Vintage 2000 In original wooden case (12) "...Fairly deep, black cherry, mauve rim, rich'legs'; as usual, nothing shy about the ecent of the young Margaux, it exuded raspberry-like fragrance; sweet, fullish, concentrated, dense, firm, with lovely fruit-" (*****) Classic, long haul wine. MB, Vintage Wine Château Haut Brion--Vintage 2000 In original wooden case (12) "...it is a wine of intensity, authority, and measured restraint. A supremely elegant offering, its dense ruby/purple color, and burgeoning perfume of scorched earth, liquid minerals, plums, black currants, cherries, lead pencil, and subtle spicy oak are followed by a delicate yet powerfully flavorful, multi-layered, highly nuanced, and extraordinarily pure and seamless wine... it is certainly a prodigious wine of dazzling persistence, length, and complexity. A blend of 51 Merlot, 42 Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7 Cabernet Franc, it should prove to be uncommonly long-lived, even by the standards of Haut-Brion. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2040." Robert Parker Wine Advocate # 146 (Apr 2003) Château Petus--Vintage 2000 In two six-bottle original wooden cases (12) " A magical effort from Pétrus, the 2000 has continued to gain weight and stature. From the bottle, it is a perfect wine, much like the 1998. The color is inky plum/purple to the rim and the nose, which starts slowly, begins to roar after several minutes, offering up scents of smoke, blackberries, cherries, licorice, and an unmistakable truffle underbrush element. On the palate, this enormous effort is reminiscent of dry vintage port, with fabulous ripeness, a huge, unctuous texture, enormous body, and a colossal 65-second finish... Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050." Robert Parker Wine Advocate #146 (Apr 2003) Château Le Pin--Vintage 2000 In two six-bottle original wooden cases (12) "Exotic, opulent, extravagant, and impossible to resist, the 2000 Le Pin is an explosive, virtually perfect example of this estate. Dense purple-colored, with luxurious levels of extract and richness, this intense, unctuously-textured, black fruit-filled Pomerol is thick enough to drink with a spoon. Revealing abundant tannin and definition for such a young Le Pin, it is typical of many of the blockbuster, but backward and tannic 2000 Pomerols. It is a great wine for multi-millionaires who are able to latch onto a few bottles. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025." Robert Parker Wine Advocate #146 (Apr 2003) Château Cheval Blanc--Vintage 2000 In two six-bottle original wooden cases (12) "This closed, backward blend of 53 Merlot and 47 Cabernet Franc boasts a saturated purple color along with a reticent but striking bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, truffles, and mocha. In spite of its tightness, aeration reveals scents of licorice, menthol, and saddle leather. Opulent and full-bodied, with low acidity, sweet tannin, and a 60-second finish, it is unquestion

THE MONUMENTAL 2000 BORDEAUX VINTAGE "The growing season, as always in Bordeaux, was by no means straightforward. The New Year and spring were more than mild, with above-average temperatures in March, resulting in early bud burst. However, though the warmth continued in April and May, it was wet, flowering started at the end of the month. The damp conditions continued through a depressingly cloudy and humid June and July. What saved the day (rather like 1978 though the heat and sun arrived a month earlier) was almost unbroken sunshine without rain from August through September, resulting in fine ripening conditions favouring the Merlot and, for those who waited and timed it right, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon. Unquestionably, this was a very good year, fairly uniform in quality with some really outstanding wines. No serious cellar should be without some decent 2000s."
