The 2000 Burmester Vintage Port has come from the Burmester Cellars in Porto where it was cellared until purchased by us.
The 2000 Burmester Vintage Port is beautifully ripe red and dark berry fruits and violets in the nose and the mouth. Pleasantly sweet and smooth. Good acidity and fine tannins at this early stage. Medium bodied and a lovely Port wine. Outstanding.

Francesco Sobrero & Figli
Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.

Cascina La Pertica Brunori - Le Zalte
Brachetto tend to produce light-bodied, highly aromatic wines with distinctive notes of strawberries. In the DOCG region of Brachetto d'Acqui, the grape is used to produce a slightly sweet sparkling wine that is similar to Lambrusco and is sometimes called the a light red equivalent of Moscato d'Asti.

Pessac-Leogan Cru Classe
89 Points Robeert Parker
Review: "This may turn out to be an outstanding effort. Deep and concentrated for a 2001, it offers a classic Pessac-Leognan bouquet of smoky, scorched earth, black currants, melted licorice, and a hint of burning embers. Although still monolithic, this medium-bodied claret possesses good texture, purity, ripeness, and overall balance." RP Wine Advocate 2004
Château de Fieuzal is a significant Graves property that has a reputation for producing both red and white wines of extremely high quality. De Fieuzal was bought by Swedish-born Erik Bocké after the end of the war and he was responsible for building up the Château's reputation which culminated in it being classified as a Graves Cru Classé.

St Emilion Grand Cru Bordeaux
***91 Points - Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider***
A 2000 wine produced from the left bank of Bordeaux.
This is fully mature, medium bodied and on the elegant, finesse side of the style range, focusing on its floral, cherry pipe tobacco, thyme and truffle nose. Soft, ripe, cherries are all over the finish. There is no need to age this further. The wine was produced from blending 60% Merlot with 40% Cabernet Franc.

*** 90 Points Neil Martin Wine Journal ***
This outstanding 90 point wine from the great 2000 vintage is excellent value.
"..Owner/ winemaker Christian Veyry crafts seductive Saint-Émilion with bags of charm from an outstanding terroir, below the village of St Laurent-des-Combes, which was ignored by many Bordeaux growers until Christian showed its full potential. But Christian’s ability to craft wines of great quality has made Saint-Émilion’s top growers sit up and take notice and, more importantly, our own discerning clientele.
Rich, very ripe nose of plum & cassis fruit, …

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
100 points Robert Parker
The 2000 Lafite Rothschild is one of the legendary wines of the great 2000 vintage.
I expected the 2000 Lafite Rothschild to be much too young, but I was blown away by how it performed at this meal. A classic Lafite with notes of lead pencil shavings and black currants as well as a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, it possessed striking intensity as well as aromatics. The wine seemed more evolved than I remember, but it is still an adolescent in terms of maturity. This beautiful, rich, full offering is a stunning achievement.
Score: 100 Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette, July 2013

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classificaton
This is a solid all round Bordeaux from the excellent 2000 vintage. The 2000 Lynch Moussas is a light to medium ruby-coloured, cassis-scented Pauillac. It exhibits medium body, good balance, and sweet fruit.

Pauillac, 5ème Cru Classé
***97 Points - Robert Parker***
***95 Points - Jeff Leve***
***93 Points - Jeannie Cho Lee***
Beginning to open magnificently, the still dense purple-colored 2000 reveals a blossoming bouquet of blackberries, cassis, graphite and pen ink. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. One of the all-time great examples of Lynch Bages, the 2000 is just beginning to drink well yet promises to last for another 20-25+ years".
