2000 Les Carmes Haut Brion, Pessac-Leognan

SKU #1031676 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is a slight upgrade for this wine, which seems to be approaching full maturity but is in no danger of losing fruit or declining for at least another 10 years. It is one of the most elegant wines of the vintage, with an ethereal nose of red and blue fruits, spring flowers, and hints of bay leaf and graphite, while unsmoked cigar tobacco and plum also make an appearance in the strikingly complex aromatics and flavors. The wine is medium-bodied, not a blockbuster by any means, but a wine of terrific balance, purity, symmetry, and style. Drink it over the next 20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Gorgeous wine. Very ripe, with exotic fruit and smoky, earthy undertones. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Much better than what I tasted from barrel. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2003)
