Dbl Magnum - 2000 Chateau Grand Pontet, Grand Cru St Emilion

Given a whopping 92 points by wine critic Robert Parker, and described as a sexy, exotic, flamboyant and the greatest wine ever from this estate by others, the 2000 Grand Pontet is a very serious wine, made all the more serious by the size of the bottle. Claret matures slowly and gracefully in double magnum, and when it comes from as great a vintage as 2000 and as fine a region as St Emilion, the result is quite extraordinary. The fruit is concentrated, the tannins are silky and smooth and the finish is complex and long. Pulling the cork on this with a select group of friends could make for a very memorable evening indeed.
