The texture is solid filled with firm tannins the flavors are black and ripe. Along with the power though is much of the elegance and poise that characterizes great Saint-Julien.

A beautiful wine from Branaire the 2000 is close to full maturity and should offer plenty of pleasure over the next 15-20 years. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by scents of boysenberries black currants and spring flowers. This medium to full-bodied pure St.-Julien hits the palate with authority displaying silky tannins as well as wonderful richness depth and texture.

This is lovely with pretty berry floral and currant aromas. Full-bodied with silky and caressing tannins and a delicious fruity finish. Harmonious and enjoyable...

Then more herbs, minty chocolate and dark fruits on the palate, lifted by a note of faded flowers. The long, creamy finish features truffles and brown spices. While a recently tasted magnum was drinking beautifully, another 750-ml. bottle was tired, earthy and drying. This note reflects the better 750, which I think is more typical of this wine. Harvested between September 25 and October 10.

Bright crimson and promising although still quite tight with marked acidity. Some very attractive perfumes have already developed but there is lots of tannin still to resolve. 17/20
