2000 burgundies' potential
16 Apr 2004 by JR
James Stark, UK: Hope you are having/had a great holiday despite the petulant Pavie posturings of Parker. Just before Christmas you recommended getting out the 2000 red burgundies already and my experiences with Vosne Romanee Les Beauxmonts from Rion and Chambolle Musigny from Barthod would confirm that they are indeed drinking really well now . My question is how long do you think they will last ? I don't want to guzzle them all too soon but nor do I want to leave them and find that they are quickly past their best ....
