Ch De Lascours Merlot Vdp d'Oc 2000 Product #27984 (In Stock)
Ch De Lascours Merlot Vdp d'Oc 2000 Ch De Lascours Merlot Vdp d'Oc 2000

Years ago, importer Olivier Daubresse teamed up with this small estate in Pic St. Loup for a special project - a Langeudoc Merlot aged in 100% new oak.  It was a majestic wine, but hard as nails, needing time.  Now, 13 years later, the results are very impressive as the mature wine gushes with dark red currant, black olive, earthy tobacco, and warm spice aromas and flavors. Firm, powerful, impressive.

Guillon Gevry-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champonnets 2000 Product #10952 (In Stock)

This was a difficult vintage.  The vines set a big crop of big bunches of big, thin-skinned, berries.  Humid weather made rot a constant challenge, ripening went slowly, and then it rained late.  Like all top growers, Jean Michel ended up leaving a large portion of his fruit on the ground in the vineyard, threw away more on the sorting table, and then had to manage fermentations carefully to extract what the grapes had to offer without overwhelming the gentle fruit with hard tannin.

And now, 13 years later, it’s blindingly obvious that he was successful.  No, it’s not a “great” wine, but it’s certainly utterly charming and pretty, with gentle red berry fruit framed by notes of coffee, fresh earth, and iron.  Lovely to sniff and delicious to drink, and soft and easy on the finish where just enough tannin for food remains.  A delicious, mature, red Burgundy to enjoy now – 2017 or so.

Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2000 Product #27758 (In Stock)
Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2000 Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2000

Lovely already; deep and creamy.

"The first thing that is evident about the 2000 Brut Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill is its finesse and total silkiness. The 2000 is a rich, creamy and deeply expressive Winston Churchill. I don’t see the 2000 being an especially long-term ager, but it is wonderfully radiant and open today. Hints of pastry, spice, apricots and succulent ripe pears blossom on the expansive, broad-shouldered finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030."Wine Advocate 94 points
