The 2000 Do Ut Des could easily pass for a 2000 Bordeaux. Somewhat internationally-styled, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, extracted, high tannin feel in the mouth, a larger than life personality, and a massive finish. This is a seriously rich, formidable effort that requires plenty of time in the bottle. Sadly, only 250 cases were produced. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2012+.
This Montreal , Quebec client has chosen to sell this small collectiondue to the sale of the house and he has a place for only 100 bottles. All wines were purchased from the LCBO and SAQ (government agency) and held in a proper humidity and temperature controlled cellar. The client started getting interested in wines in 1985 after going to a wine show in Toronto.He always had a weakness for red Bordeaux from good years. In his house he had build a 750 bottle walk in wine cellar which he kept at 53F and 70 percent humidity year round.
