2000 Château Bellefont-Belcier - France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (9/24/2017)
From an original case bought on release. Decanted and served immediately.
An excellent bottle! I’ve not opened a bottle in about two years, and the time has done wonders for the wine.
The color was a deep red with little thinning. After about 10 minutes of air, the palate started showing blackberries and cassis with some smokiness and violets. The nose had distinctive leather and cedar. Overall it seemed fully mature but far from starting to deteriorate. I would say it will drink well up to its 20th year. (90 pts.)
