St Julien 4me Cru Classe
***91/100 Robert Parker***
***17/20 Jancis Robinson***
***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***

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.
Price: £89.00 (13 in Stock)
Margaux, cru bourgeois (MAGNUM)
Scoring 90+ points on Cellar Tracker. The 2000 chateau Labegorce is recommended for the vintage.
"The wine is of a strong brick. Advanced nose of leather, undergrowth, some smoke and spices. On the palate, the wine takes about thirty minutes before getting out of its shell and offers at this time tart cherry (sweet cherry candy), spices (anise), a hint of smoke, leather, undergrowth, with typical acidity of an old wine. The bottle emptied quickly and was appreciated by people around the table. Made 11.5% alcohol." Cellar Tracker

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".

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.

Mouis (Medoc) Cru Grand Bourgeois
*** 17/20- Jancis Robinson ***
Very dark crimson. Pretty rich and gamey on the nose. Excellent alluring fragrance. Good, lively stuff. Slightly dry on the finish, but pretty succulent fruit on the mid palate - racy and very well balanced. GV. Jancis Robinson
