Chateau Cos D Estournel
Château Cos Destournel 2nd Growth St Estephe 1999 On the palate, plenty of sweet intensity and liquorice. Very well structured with big, firm tannins supporting vivid opulent fruit. A lovely dense wine.
Chateau Cos Labory
Chateau Cos Labory 5eme Growth St Estephe 2000 Jancis Robinson states - Particularly opulent, appetising nose although the tannins are currently rather jagged. A good testament to the vintage however, from this rather modest property, my score 17 / 20.
Chateau Gruaud Larose
Château Gruaud Larose 2nd Growth St Julien 2000 One of the greatest wines of the vintage, layer after layer of pure fruit, with a long, long finish.
