Wine Advocate: 94 Points

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.

Vinous: 92 Points

"Medium red with an amber rim. Precise aromas of red fruits dried herbs and earth. 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." Ian D'Agata-

Wine Spectator: 92 Points

This sports a tarry-edged core of slightly chunky-textured plum paste and cassis flavors. The lively brambly finish is a touch chewy but has good enough energy with an ample dose of cocoa powder and licorice root in the end. A bit squared off overall but there's plenty of stuffing here to wait it out a bit longer.?Blind 2000 Bordeaux retrospective (December 2015). Drink now through 2025. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 15000 cases made.
