Tasting Notes

One of the wines of the vintage, the 2000 has barely budged in its evolution since it was bottled and released in 2002. After ten years in bottle, it still reveals a dense opaque purple color along with a potentially sensational bouquet of blueberries, black currants, graphite, asphalt and background oak. Extremely powerful, full-bodied and superbly concentrated with good acidity and high but round tannins, this massive La Mission-Haut-Brion should take its place among this estate’s most hallowed vintages when it hits full maturity in another one to two decades. I was surprised by just how youthful this wine tasted at age 12. If tasted blind, I would have guessed it to be around 4 to 5 years old. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050.

Provenance

This collection is a small part of a 10,000+ bottle cellar that has been meticulously kept at perfect temperature and humidity. Iron Gate has personally known this client for 10 years and even assisted in originally setting up this cellar when it was originally built by one of the top wine cellar designers in Toronto. Inventory was managed with an eSommelier system and to say that ultimate, almost obsessive care was taken in storing these wines would be un understatement. The collector himself is well connected in the wine world and always purchased from top producers and/or futures. The sale is a result of a migration to Burgundy in his drinking habits.
