97 points Wine Spectator: "This shows some noticeable maturity at first, with black tea and mulling spice notes out front, but there's a lovely spine of briary tannins and finely beaded acidity that pulls this back to a fresher side as the core of raspberry pâte de fruit slowly wakes up, throwing off additional cherry, currant and plum nuances. By the time this all knits through the finish, you realize it's just a bit too soon to open this beauty.—Blind 2000 Bordeaux retrospective. Best from 2020 through 2035. 265 cases made. (6/30/16)"

96 points Jane Anson (Decanter): "A major vintage, where the tough spring gave way to a beautiful summer. Here it's the Cabernet Franc that's dominant, giving lift and aromatic complexity that seems to take a hold as it rolls through the palate. Raspberry leaf, blackcurrant and liquorice are all dominant. It's still extremely young, so you can take your time opening any bottles that you have of this beautiful wine. Drinking Window: 2018-2030. (Sep 2018)"

95 points Robert Parker: "A gorgeous wine of grace, elegance, and power, this youthful 2000 will benefit from another five years of cellaring. It appears to have 25 more years of life ahead of it. A deep ruby/purple color is just beginning to lighten at the edges. The bouquet offers up scents of cedar wood, melted licorice, black currants, blackberries, caramel, and mocha. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, and pure with low acidity as well as formidable tannins in the long finish, the 2000 should rival vintages such as 2005, 2006, and 2009. (Jun 2010)"
