Chateau Chauvin St. Emilion 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Chauvin St. Emilion 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely Limited, No Discounts! 92 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2003 "A superb wine, this opaque purple-colored effort boasts a vividly pure nose of graphite, melted licorice, creme de cassis, espresso, and wet stones backed up by subtle, high quality, spicy, new oak. Multi-layered, full-bodied, dense, concentrated, and pure, with sweet tannin and superb length, this future classic will be at its best between 2008-2019." -Robert Parker

Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 92 Wine Advocate, June 2010 A beautiful wine and one of my favorites from this estate, this blend of nearly two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Merlot is aging impressively. Dense ruby/purple in color, with creme de cassis, charcoal, and sweet leathery and chocolatey notes intermixed with the classic Pauillac cedar and spice box, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy, with sweet tannin and a long finish. It seems to have inched into its window of full drinking maturity, and will stay there for 10-15+ years." -Robert Parker

Chateau Clos de l'Oratoire St. Emilion 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 92 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "Ripe, well-made, and slightly over-rated in my report written seven years ago, this 2000 exhibits lots of black currants, cherries, smoked herbs, and spice in a full-bodied, round, generous, fully mature style. Delicious at present, it should drink well for another 5-7 years." -Robert Parker

Chateau Duhart-Milon Rothschild Pauillac 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL
Chateau Duhart-Milon Rothschild Pauillac 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

No Discounts! 92+ Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "Consumers should take note as this estate is clearly benefiting from increased attention from the Rothschilds. The 2003 may be the finest Duhart-Milon made ... ever! A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot, it boasts a deep ruby/purple hue in addition to a big, sweet perfume of black fruits interwoven with roasted herbs and meat juice offered in a muscular, full-bodied style. Full-bodied, dense, and well-structured, this stunning cuvee is best consumed between 2010-2030." -Robert Parker 92 Points - Wine Spectator, March 2006 "Blackberry with toasted oak and coffee aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Lovely texture to this wine. Dense and refined. Very tight right now. One of the best I have tasted from this estate. Best after 2009. 20,000 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Grand Pontet St.-Emilion 2000 French Bordeaux Red Wine
Chateau Grand Pontet St.-Emilion 2000 French Bordeaux Red Wine
92 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2003
"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! Anticipated maturity: Now-2015." -Robert Parker

92 Points - Wine Spectator, March 2013
"Very intense aromas of minerals and crushed berries, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with super silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Sleek wine. Greatest wine ever from this estate. Best after 2008. 3,750 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 94 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "The 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste is even better than such recent vintages as 2005 and 2009. A broad, classic, large-scaled effort, it boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as tell-tale notes of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, flowers, and unsmoked tobacco. Powerful, full-bodied flavors have shed a lot of tannin, but they remain relatively youthful. This is a young adolescent, broadly flavored Pauillac with an enticing texture as well as abundant richness and fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but promises to hit its peak in five years, and last for two decades." -Robert Parker

Chateau Haut Bergey Pessac-Leognan 2000 French Red Wine 750 mL
Chateau Haut Bergey Pessac-Leognan 2000 French Red Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited, No discounts! 94 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "I bought this wine for myself because I thought it was a sleeper of the vintage, and I couldn't be happier. My score in two tastings was identical to what it was seven years ago. Chocolatey espresso notes jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, with a silky texture, loads of concentration and density, this is a beautiful wine that is both hedonistically and intellectually pleasing. The wine seems to have reached full maturity, where it should stay for another 10-15 years." -Robert Parker

Chateau La Conseillante Pomerol 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau La Conseillante Pomerol 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 96 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "La Conseillante made an excellent wine in 2001, another great one in 2005, and the estate hit home runs in both 2008 and, above all, in 2009. In fact, the latter vintage may well end up being the modern-day reference point for La Conseillante. Nevertheless, there's a lot to be said for this 2000. An elegant, gentle style that is never a blockbuster, the 2000 La Conseillante has a deep ruby/plum/purple color and an unbelievably expressive nose of sweet kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, incense, toast, and licorice. Full-bodied yet ethereal in the sense that it seems to combine power along with eloquence and delicacy, this is a beautifully pure wine that has just hit its plateau of full maturity, although ideally I think it would benefit strongly from another 4-5 years of bottle age and drink well for two to three decades." -Robert Parker

Chateau La Fleur Petrus Pomerol 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL
Chateau La Fleur Petrus Pomerol 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

93+ Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "I am not convinced the 2000 La Fleur Petrus is going to eclipse the 1998, which performed even better in a recent tasting. Nevertheless, it is a terrific effort from this estate, sandwiched between the hallowed vineyards of Petrus and Lafleur. A deep plum/ruby color is followed by aromas of mocha, kirsch liqueur, loamy soil, spice box, and licorice. It is an opulent, medium to full-bodied, big, substantial yet elegant, precise Pomerol displaying beautiful purity. It is just beginning to drink well, and should continue to age for another 10+ years. One of the two bottles I tasted was corked." -Robert Parker

Chateau La Mondotte St. Emilion 1996 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau La Mondotte St. Emilion 1996 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, no discounts! 97 Points - Wine Advocate, April 1999 "An amazing wine, the 1996 La Mondotte (approximately 800 cases made from a 30-year old parcel of 100% Merlot planted on a hillside between Le Tertre-Roteboeuf and Canon La Gaffeliere) is a super-star. If readers cannot get excited by tasting the 1996, they should change beverages. It is amazing for both its appellation and the vintage, revealing a remarkable level of richness, profound concentration, and integrated tannin. The thick purple color suggests a wine of extraordinary extract and richness. This super-concentrated wine offers a spectacular nose of roasted coffee, licorice, blueberries, and black currants intermixed with smoky new oak. It possesses full body, a multidimensional, layered personality with extraordinary depth of fruit, a seamless texture, amazing viscosity, and a long, 45-second finish. The tannin is sweet and well-integrated. This blockbuster St.-Emilion should be at its best between 2006-2025. A dry, vintage port Fonseca! For its immense size, this wine is neither heavy nor over-done!" -Robert Parker
