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

Medoc Cru Grand Bourgeois
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is a beautiful wine and certainly one of the great sleepers of the vintage. I originally predicted that this wine would be at full maturity between 2007 and 2028, but I would push that back by a good 4-5 years. Still inky/purple, with notes of acacia flowers intermixed with wet rocks, black currants, and blueberries, the wine is full-bodied, displays no real evidence of any oak, and offers up terrific concentration, texture, and length.

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
This was one of the smoothest, softest wines. This has a hauntingly elegant nose and when you drink it it feels like it evaporates in the mouth. The body and richness is there and it leaves a finish of 20-30 seconds which takes this wine to another level of complexity.

St Julien, 4me Cru Classe
*** 93 Points Robert Parker ***
This was a strong performance (better than my original notes suggested) by the 2000 Talbot. Close to full maturity, it exhibits a dense ruby/plum/purple color in addition to a subtle herbaceousness intermixed with smoked meats, black currants, licorice, cedar, and foresty notes. Rich and full-bodied with light tannins, and a slightly richer, more savory, broader, deeper style than I remember, it should drink well for 10-15 years Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (189), June 2010

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.

Domaine de la Charbonniere Curvee Mourre des Perdrix
The nose expresses a mixture of savoury BBQ ribs with floral and dark cherry. Soft on the palate and well balanced especially since the alcohol content is at 15%. A focused finish with moderate length.

Castello di Farnetella - Felsina

Castello di Lucignano - Riserva
Chianti, situated in Tuscany in central Italy, is home to probably the best-known and most iconic of all Italian wines.
The area’s most highly regarded wines come from the Chianti Classico zone which is the heartland of the Chianti wine region – its traditional and longest-established vinicultural area. This fame is due not just to the high quality of the wines, but also to the classico zone's iconic Tuscan landscape and wine making traditions. This Chianti is characterised by its red and black cherry character, intermingled with notes of wild herbs, mint and spice, supported by a racy acidity and mellow tannins.

Reviews: An outstanding port rating 90 points. "A striking, individualistic nose of spring flowers, blackberries, blueberries, and lead pencil shavings emerges from this saturated purple-coloured 2000. Evolved yet expansive, sweet, and generous, it admirably conceals moderately high tannins under a wealth of fruit and glycerin. The aromatic profile and attack merit a score in the mid-nineties, but the finish is short, thus lowering the overall rating.
