Roasted plum smoke licorice and game on the nose; less expressive than the 2001 following the October bottling. Sweet and supple in the mouth with floral red fruit flavors and a silkiness of texture that reminded me of Burgundy. Sound acids give this 2000 a juicy quality and contribute to the impression of grip.

The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape is pure sex in a bottle. A fragrant bouquet offers up aromas of spice box cedar pepper jammy cherries and a hint of plums and prunes. Dense full-bodied and evolved but gorgeously succulent... The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape is pure sex in a bottle. A fragrant bouquet offers up aromas of spice box cedar pepper jammy cherries and a hint of plums and prunes. Dense full-bodied and evolved but gorgeously succulent this is a seamless voluptuous Chateauneuf du Pape. Its fragrance tactile mouthfeel and explosive finish make for a sumptuous Chateauneuf du Pape to drink now and over the next 10-12 years.

Clever winemaking pushing the terroir envelope while also delivering ripe fruit and deftly dosed oak. Smooth tannins silky texture plenty of fruit and a hint of mineral lead-pencil and wet earth in a balanced medium-bodied package that plays to the strength of this somewhat fragile vintage. Drink now through 2010. 5415 cases made.
