Chateau Branaire Ducru St. Julien 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Branaire Ducru St. Julien 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 95 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux, president of Unions des Grands Crus Classes, is pulling out all the stops to make Branaire as alluring as several of the Leovilles and Ducru Beaucaillou. 2003 and 2004 may be the finest back-to-back vintages ever produced at Branaire. Even better than the 1982, the profound 2003 Branaire Ducru boasts a saturated plum/purple color as well as an extraordinarily complex nose of black currants, blackberries, espresso roast, white chocolate, minerals, and truffles. It displays amazing freshness and definition for such a complex, complete, and full-bodied wine. A brilliant effort in the vintage, it will undoubtedly close down in several years and need more time, but perhaps its low acidity and huge, extravagant fruit-forwardness will keep it drinking well over the next two decades. A brilliant wine!" -Robert Parker

Chateau Brane Cantenac Margaux 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Brane Cantenac Margaux 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 92 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "Fully mature and very attractive, the 2000 Brane Cantenac, which started a succession of brilliant wines from this famous estate in the Margaux appellation, has a dark plum/ruby/purple color, a sweet, juicy nose of blue, red, and black fruits, and a hint of damp earth as well as subtle herbs. Spicy, round, complex, very lush, and at its plateau of maturity, this wine should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years at minimum. This is Margaux elegance and silkiness at its very best." -Robert Parker

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 Cos d'Estournel St. Estephe 2001 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely Limited Item! 94 Points! "Highly Recommended" Wine Spectator, Mar 31, 2004 "Wonderful spice and currant aromas to this young wine. Full-bodied, with super well?integrated, refined tannins.

Chateau D'Issan Margaux 2000 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL
Chateau D'Issan Margaux 2000 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited, No discounts! 93 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "Fully mature, the 2000 D'Issan is a quintessentially elegant, yet concentrated, aristocratic Margaux that defines the appellation. The wine has a dark ruby/purple color just beginning to lighten at the edge. Notes of charcoal, acacia flowers, black raspberries, and blue fruits are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine that builds incrementally on the palate. With its outstanding purity, richness, elegance and length, this is a beauty that has reached its window of maturity, where it should stay for another 15 or more 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
