Chateau Beychevelle

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***

Price: £129.95 (1 in Stock)

Chateau Durfort Vivens, 2000

Margaux 2nd Growth Classification

From the outstanding 2000 vintage, the Durfort Vivens has a wonderful bouquet on opening. It needs some time in the decanter to find its balance. Lovely fruit and depth of flavour with a good long finish. Still has a tannic backbone and has a long life ahead of it.

Price: £74.95 (10 in Stock)

Chateau Grand Pontet, 2000

St Emilion

92 points outstanding - Robert Parker

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Quality has exploded in 2000, offering an extra dimension in both aromas and flavors. A blend of 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon produced from modest yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare, this opaque purple-colored, fat, ripe, exotic, flamboyant effort (coffee, plums, vanilla, and sweet black cherries galore) is a St.-Emilion fruit-bomb made in a modern style. With loads of character, glycerin, fruit, and concentration, this full-bodied, 'stacked and packed' wine will be adored by consumers! (RP) (4/2003)

92 points Wine Spectator
Very intense aromas of minerals and crushed berries, with hints of flowers.

Price: £69.00 (8 in Stock)

Chateau la Tour Figeac, 2000

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 (11 in Stock)

Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 2000

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
100 points Robert Parker

The 2000 Lafite Rothschild is one of the legendary wines of the great 2000 vintage.

Critical Acclaim
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

Subtle aromas of currants, leather, tobacco and cedar.

Price: £1395.00 (2 in Stock)

Chateau Lynch-Bages

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".

Chateau Mouton Rothschild , 2000

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.

Price: £1950.00 (1 in Stock)

Chateau Poujeaux, 2000

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

Chateau Tour de By, 2000

Chateu Tour de By is a substantial 70 hectare estate, located at Bégadan in the northern Medoc. This ever-reliable property produced an opulent, generously fruity 2000 that impressed 'en primeur'and confirmed its early potential during its youth. Now approaching its best it displays vibrancy of fruit with hints of oak in support.
