St Julien 4me Cru Classe

***92/100 Jeannie Cho Lee***
***17/20 La Revue du Vin de France***
Deep ruby/purple in color, with a sweet nose of black currants, earth, licorice, and mineral, the 2000 is relatively powerful and dense for the normally restrained and elegant Beychevelle. Medium to full-bodied, dense, and chewy, it is showing even better out of bottle than it was from cask. While it appears to be the finest example made at Beychevelle since the 1989 and 1982, patience will be required. ***91/100 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (146), April 2003***

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".

*** 95 Points Wine Journal ***
Fonseca vintage ports are noted for their luscious fruitiness which develops great opulence and complexity with age. These are released only when a year produces outstanding wines with long term ageing potential. These classic vintage ports are a blend of wines from three distinctive vineyards, Cruzeiro, Santo Antonio and Panascal. Each of these contribute characteristics such as concentrated black fruit flavours with a firm tannic “grip”, opulent luscious fruitiness and dense velvety texture with flavour complexity and vibrancy of colour followed by a fine scented character and fresh acidity.

Colheita Single Harvest Tawny Port
The Messias colheita port from the outstanding 2000 vintage has been aged in a barrel until recent bottling. The extensive barrel ageing has given this wine a tawny colour with an expressive nose of wild dried fruit aromas where blackberry stands out. On the palate, caramel nuances complement the dried fruit leading to a sweet vanilla touch. It finishes long with a persistent and fine aftertaste.
Pair this luscious sweet port with almond tarts or caramel and chocolate based desserts. Crème brûlée is a classic combination as is Stilton cheese. Hard cheeses such as cheddar pair well too.

Sensational with almond tarts!
The 2000 Quevedo colheita port is an amazing value/quality port from an exceptional vintage. With a bright tawny colour and vivid terracotta highlights this brilliant single harvest tawny continues to charm on the nose with ripe cherries and dried raspberries combined with subtle notes of almonds and little hints of caramel. On the palate it is fresh, rich and powerful with a long chocolate finish. This is a Colheita that will age well in bottle.
Pair this luscious sweet port with almond tarts or caramel and chocolate based desserts. Crème brûlée is a classic combination as is Stilton cheese.

***91 Points - Robert Parker***
***90 Points - Jeannie Cho Lee***
***90 Points - Wine Spectator***
The 2000 Bahans Haut-Brion is fully mature. Its smoky, soft berry fruit and notes of fresh porcini mushrooms intermixed with cigar tobacco and black currants are complex. This complexity is followed by a fleshy, elegant, silky wine.
