The 2000s are looking even better

12 Apr 2002 by JR

Having tasted 300 2001s, and waded my way through this hugely variable and by no means entirely satisfactory vintage, I have to say that the 2000s are looking even more delicious. And such 2000s as I had a chance to taste in Bordeaux (Mouton, Latour, Pichon Lalande, Vieux Château Certan, Eglise Clinet and Cheval Blanc - the last of which has firmed up considerably) were streets ahead of their counterparts from the subsequent vintage.

Those to whom points are important should note that I feel very tempted to add a straight point out of 20 across the board to all the marks I awarded a year ago to the 2000s!
