No wines in the world age as well as Bordeaux. The wines are built for the cellar with big tannic structures that need time to soften over time, The wines that age the best are the wines from the great vintages. One of the greatest vintages of all-time is 2000. It has become a legendary vintage rivalling greats like ’82, ’61 and ’45. Today we have a tremendous value from this great vintage, the 2000 Epicure, which I tasted last week. The wine is made by one of the most famous winemakers of Bordeaux, Hubert de Bouard who is also owner of the famous Chateau Angelus. Bouard is Bordeaux Royalty and is how we discovered the wine in Bordeaux. The wine has been brought to us straight from the cellars in Bordeaux. The wine is drinking superbly, holding its fruit superbly, has spread out superbly across the palate, velvety smoot, no hard edges, a Bordeaux in its glory. The wine is from the Medoc, the left bank and is Cabernet based. This great offer gives you an opportunity to experience excellent Bordeaux, aged to perfection from a great vintage, made by one of Bordeaux’s greats at an extremely good price. This is truly a no-brainer buy with free case shipping that’s perfect drinking this winter and beyond.
