This was pure, rich and glossy with ripeness in spades. It’s a pretty impressive 20 year old and shows no signs of fatigue. Lovely stuff - 2000

Masterclass in San Francisco with Saskia De Rothschild, Chairwoman DBR Lafite. Saskia told me they are buying an existing property or starting one new in China. The nose reveals; ripe and slight stewed fruits. Blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, dark plum skin, dry cranberries & poached strawberries. Dark, dry soils, limestone minerals, touch of bandaid=VA, saddle-wood, steeped black tea, dry river stone, dark rich & dry soils, crushed rocks, dry underbrush, cherry cola with dry and fresh dark and red flowers. The body is full and thick. This wine is just coming out of its infant stage and just starting to stretch it arms & legs. The tannins are firm, rounded with powdery dry tannins. The structure, tension, length and balance show the beauty of the vintage but, the drinking window on their 2000 is somewhere between 2035-2080. Blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, dark plum skin, dry cranberries & poached strawberries. Dark, dry soils, limestone minerals, touch of bandaid, saddle-wood, steeped black tea, dry river stone, dark rich & dry soils, lots of graphite, crushed rocks, limestone, dry crushed rocks, gritty volcanic minerals, dry herbs, dry underbrush, cherry cola with dry and fresh dark and red flowers. The acidity is round and beautiful. The finish is very good now but, if you don’t cellar 35 years from birth, you are cheating yourself out of something truly special. Its well balanced, rich, ripe and persists for days. 95 with more to come in 16-25 plus years. All wines arrived weeks ago directly from the Chateau. Photos of; the Crown Room on the 23rd floor of the Fairmont where the Masterclass was held, tasting set up, Saskia De Rothschild, Chairwoman DBR Lafite presenting and another view of the city of San Francisco/Bay and the Golden Gate Bride in the background.

Special vintage rising to the occasion. Still ruby, still primary. Incredible youth at 16.

2000 Lafite was shockingly showing more mature than I expected, lots of tertiary notes. Many wines like this can hit a plateau where it can sit for over a decade or more in this same state of enjoyment, then get even better. The 2005 outclassed the 2000 in pure enjoyment as the youth of its character allied with a supremely fragrant nose captured my senses' full attention. #pauillac #bordeaux #wine

A generous vintage. Luscious red fruits, round but gripping tannins, ripe and classic.
