Tasting notes

"A mature claret with spicy earthy notes, just as you'd expect from 17 years ageing in a top vintage" Jean-Marc Sauboua
Buyer for Bordeaux
Map showing Fronsac AOC
Tasting note information
If you were a wine enthusiast around the turn of the century, you’ll remember the buzz surrounding the 2000 vintage. Hopes were raised when near perfect conditions in late summer delivered a ripe, concentrated harvest. Then, during en primeur week the following March, the world’s wine press declared 2000 to be “the greatest modern vintage in Bordeaux” (Wine Spectator) and a “phenomenal year” (Robert Parker) and the rest is history. Prices soared, and today it’s near impossible to find a good value 2000, making this perfectly aged Fronsac a remarkable find. Silky with the benchmark concentration of the vintage, it offers dark, evolved fruit, mature leather and spicy earth notes with well integrated tannins. Drink alongside roast beef.
