Our local group convened to check-in on the great 2000 Bordeaux vintage.
Unbelievably, a completely random sample of 11 individuals' cellars turned up four bottles of the Lagrange St. Julien ... and, for me, none of them disappointed. This is a wine that is showing lovely in its relative youth.
Otherwise many of the right bankers, in particular the Monbousquet were already drinking well.
The bigger boys in the pack - Cos, Pape Clement and Montrose are not close to ready.
Certainly appears to be a great vintage - with select wines already showing pleasure ... in a big, brutish style.
