2000 Bordeaux

Today we were discussing the 2000 vintage in Bordeaux. This year was responsible for some of the best wines that Bordeaux has ever seen. It's my go-to for collecting right now. This includes the right and left bank and I am considering the last 20 vintages! It was a warmer year, so the fruit is going to come out initially, but the body is most astounding. Many of these wines are huge, and extremely age-worthy. In fact 2016 is the drinking heyday for a number of them, so I absolutely recommend shelling out the $100 for a third or fourth growth and tasting one of these gems for yourself.
