Pauillac 4th Growth Classification
*** 90 points - Robert Parker ***
An outstanding Duhart, certainly one of the best produced at this estate since the 1996, 1986, and 1982, this blend of 80.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19.5% Merlot reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of lead pencil intermixed with wet stones, black currants, and a certain leafiness. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and dense, but tightly-knit, with considerable tannin, it will require patience. For those willing to wait, it will be a sleeper of the vintage.
Price: £122.95 (12 in Stock)
From the outstanding 2000 vintage, the Chateau Gravelines has benefited from a rigorous selection, this wine is enhanced by a slight woody note with a beautiful structure and its soft tannins, it combines power and finesse.

St Emilion Grand Cru Bordeaux
Dark cherry core color, bricking at waist. All leather, graphite, cigar box and pencil shavings upon opening. Fleshy merlot texture, acidic balance, integrated tannins. With aeration, smoky and roasted fruits came to the fore - like charcoal filtered plums. Textbook 60/40 blend. As others have observed, this is squarely in its drinking window and showing really well. Cellar Tracker Review

St-Julien 3rd Growth Classification
*** 91 Points - Robert Parker ***
*** 94 Points - Neil Martin ***
Reviews "Showing far more impressively from bottle than it ever did from cask, this wine has turned out to be an outstanding Langoa Barton. It reveals a deep, saturated purple color and an expansive, sweet nose of earthy black currants, plum, and melted licorice. Structured, dense, chewy, with full body, good acidity, and plenty of tannin, this is undeniably a wine for patient connoisseurs, or as the French say, a vin de garde. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035." Robert Parker Wine Advocate 2003.
"A marvellous millennial Langoa! It has a very deep garnet core with just the first signs of ageing on the rim.
Price: £69.50 (3 in Stock)
The 2000 chateau l'enclos is made from a blend of 82% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec. It has an intense, rich nose reticent of blackberry, blackcurrant, cedar and spice. It is both silky smooth and opulent on the palate, with fantastically integrated oak and smooth tannins. Enjoy this with braised lamb shanks with crushed herb potatoes.

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
97 Points (Parker)
"The 2000 Mouton Rothschild is at its best with about 24-48 hours of decanting. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, the wine offers a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to reticent but promising aromas of toast, coffee, licorice, creme de cassis, and roasted nuts. Dense, chewy, and backward, with tremendous purity and density in addition to obvious toasty oak, it is full-bodied, powerful, tannic, and backward. Twenty-four to 48 hours of aeration only hints at its ultimate potential. This blockbuster will be exceptionally long-lived. It is not as expressive as the other first-growth Medocs, but give it time.
