Still youthful, with engaging blueberry and blackberry confiture flavors that have nice energy, pushed by singed apple wood and licorice notes but staying fresh thanks to brambly tannins. Still has a ways to go.—2000 Bordeaux blind retrospective (December 2015). Drink now through 2023. (JM, Web-2016)
Medium ruby-red. Sexy, smoky aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, musky espresso, chocolate and smoke. Lush, fat and expressive, with very sweet flavors of black raspberry, kirsch, game and chocolate; already rather open-knit. With its compelling volume, glyceral texture and uncanny mouth coverage, this could easily be mistaken for a top California wine. Finishes with a very fine dusting of tannins and lingering sweetness. Will offer great early appeal. (ST)
Performing even better than I remember, former proprietor Eric Prissette’s 2000 may be the finest wine he ever made at this modestly sized St.-Emilion estate. A blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color with little evolution, abundant notes of melted licorice, black currants, blackberries, coffee, and chocolate, and a hint of toasty oak in the background. It is a full-bodied, layered, rich wine to enjoy over the next decade. (RP)
