2000 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: 2000 Port: The 2000 Vintage was the first to be declared in the 21st century and will be remembered for the immense concentration of its wines and for the small quantities produced. The wines are already showing tremendous promise, with intense berry fruit aromas and full-bodied structure, which at this early stage is an excellent sign.

 
Italian: 2000 was one of the finest post war vintages for Piedmont wines. The wines are still tannic and youthful. They will last for many years to come.
 
Bordeaux: 2000 wine: The fabled millennium vintage produced wines that are of true greatness and longevity. They are characterised as being powerful, concentrated with high tannins. The quality is due to ideal weather from the end of September. This allowed the grapes to develop thick skins from lack of moisture. For the first time in many years there was little rain in the harvest season allowing the skins to thicken further. This served to further concentrate the wines. The wines have evolved slowly and will continue to do so for many decades to come.

Bahans Haut Brion, 2000

Pessac Leognan the 2nd wine of Ch. Haut Brion

The 2000 Bahans Haut-Brion is fully mature. Its smoky, soft berry fruit and notes of fresh porcini mushrooms intermixed with cigar tobacco and black currants are complex. This complexity is followed by a fleshy, elegant, silky wine to drink over the next 5-6 years.

Haut-Brion can be among the trickiest Bordeaux to taste young, often needing a full decade before the extraordinary complexity that marks this terroir begins to emerge. I was thrilled to see how well both the second wine, Bahans Haut-Brion, and Haut-Brion performed in this tasting, and both scores are slight upgrades.

Chateau Charmail, 2000

Haut Medoc

*** 93 Points Robert Parker ***
Reviews
"This is the finest effort I have ever tasted from this estate. It possesses great intensity, an inky purple colour to the rim, a tremendous nose of minerals, white acacia flowers, creme de cassis, and black cherries, with some licorice, vanilla, and smoke in the background. It is truly great stuff, although I would not push its ageing capacity beyond 10-12 years. This intense, full-throttle offering is made from a blend of 50% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc." Robert Parker Wine Advocate.

Chateau Duhart Milon Rothschild, 2000

Pauillac 4th Growth Classification

*** 90 points - Robert Parker ***

An outstanding Duhart, certainly one of the best produced at this estate since the 1996, 1986, and 1982, this blend of 80.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19.5% Merlot reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of lead pencil intermixed with wet stones, black currants, and a certain leafiness. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and dense, but tightly-knit, with considerable tannin, it will require patience. For those willing to wait, it will be a sleeper of the vintage.

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste, 2000

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe

*** 93 Points - Robert Parker ***

"This large-scaled wine has a saturated ruby/purple colour and a big creme de cassis nose, with a hint of licorice and tobacco. Still somewhat closed, this deep, full-bodied, luscious, muscular offering exhibits ripe tannin, loads of fruit, and tremendous purity. This is a gorgeous example of one of the most popular wines in the Medoc. Its savoury tannin and low acidity suggest it should be close to its plateau of drinkability in 4-6 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020+." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 93 points.

Chateau Haut Bailly, 2000

Grand Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

2000 was a great vintage made from this Cru Classe estate that has received a lot of attention since the mid 1990s.
“Wonderful finesse and length to this wine. Loads of plum and berry, with hints of raspberry. Full-bodied, with a solid, velvety core of ripe fruit and tannins. Long finish. One of the few Pessacs better in 2000 than 1998…” 92 points Wine Spectator

“…Starting to show its wonderful depth, structure and complexity. It’s full-bodied with silky tannins and a pretty fruit character that goes from currants to sweet earth…” 94 points James Suckling

“The fruit is certainly rich, and the tannins are dusty rather than dry, but it is a wine which is developing more slowly, suggesting it is also a wine for long-term aging.

This is the finest La Clotte I have ever tasted. The 2000 reveals an opaque ruby/purple colour along with sweet aromas of liquid minerals, anise, plum, cassis, and smoke. Deep, rich, full-bodied, opulent, and moderately tannic, it will be at its peak between 2005-2016. Sexy stuff! A sleeper of the vintage. (RP) (4/2003)

Vivid crushed raspberries and minerals. Full-bodied, with compact fruit and super silky tannins. Very long on the palate. An excellent wine. Best after 2007. (JS) (3/2003)

Chateau Sociando Mallet, 2000

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.

Chateau Tour de By, 2000

Medoc Cru Bourgeois Superieur

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.


The 2000 has a light raspberry pencil-lead nose. Moderate tannins on the off-dry palate. Pencil-lead and cassis.

Chateau Yquem, 2000

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe (in Yquem Case)

*** 90 Points - e robert Parker ***

Only 25,000 bottles of Yquem were made in this very tough Sauternes vintage. A truly valiant effort from this fine property.

"The millennial 2000 Chateau d’Yquem is a valiant effort in one of the most challenging Sauternes vintages in recent memory. The 2000 is quite deep in colour. The nose is crisp and well-defined but not the most complex, as you would expect from a truly challenging growing season in Sauternes. It is pleasant in its own way with delicate scents of tangerine, yellow flowers and Mirabelle. The palate is well-balanced with marmalade tinged opening.

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.
