Bordeaux 2000 – Claret for Christmas presented by Christos Ioannou
For our Christmas offering this year Christos Ioannou will be showing a selection of Bordeaux wines from the 2000 vintage. These will be predominantly left bank (with examples from Haut Medoc,Margaux and Pauillac) and a couple from the right bank to contrast. Most will be at the cru bourgeois level (with 1 or 2 which made 5 stars in Decanter's 2000 cru bourgeois tasting) in the £12-15 price range.
This first harvest of the millennium prompted Robert Parker Jr. to say “The 2000’s possess the most impressive length, structure, concentration and delineation that I have experienced in 23 years of tasting new Bordeaux vintages”.
We will begin the evening in suitable seasonal style with a celebratory glass of Champagne.
