How are 2000 bordeaux now?
22 Apr 2009 by Jancis Robinson
As I wrote yesterday in A day out at Windsor , I’ve recently begun to look at serious red bordeaux from the 2000 and 2003 vintages to see how they are coming on. Like many of you, probably, I bought some of these wines when they were offered en primeur and have only just started thinking about drinking them. The 2000 vintage is supposedly a blue chip vintage so I had been assuming I should forget it for many a long year, but then recently I realised that the wines are already nine years old and are therefore fast approaching the conventional/old-fashioned yardstick of being ready to drink. The French will have drunk them years...
