Lot size: 2 bottles of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 2000 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: St-Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety: Bordeaux Blend

The opaque purple,full-bodied wine reveals sweet,mineral-infused,blackberry and cassis aromas and flavours,superb ripeness,a fresh,lively acidity that provides uplift as well as delineation,and a long,chewy,ripe,tannic finish.Although it will not be as approachable,young as the 1998 is,the 2000 should mature gracefully.It may have even greater longevity because of the high acid profile and more elevated tannin level. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025.
(91-93+ Points).

Robert Parker.(Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide. Sixth Edition).

Robert Parker consolidated his rating on this wine in a more recent tasting:-

A consistent winner in both quality and value,the dark plum/garnet-tinged 2000 Grand Mayne reveals a sweet nose of blueberry pie intermixed with forest floor and floral undertones.Deep,opulent,round,and full-bodied,it is a fully mature St.Emilion that should drink well for another decade.
(93 Points).
