Neptune Wine Cellar Dinner at Bello
Featuring the Brillliant 200 Vintage of Red Bordeaux
Thursday, November 17th at 6:00pm
The 2000 Bordeaux vintage is legendary. The harvest was conducted in perfect weather to the delight of vintners and harvesters everywhere. For most vintners, the 2000 Bordeaux harvest was finished by October 10. The moment the grapes were picked, the owners knew 2000 Bordeaux wine would be special. At the time, several chateaux recorded the highest levels of tannin and extract in their history.
2000 Bordeaux wine continues to hold on to its legendary status. It’s important to keep in mind, 2000 Bordeaux wine was the first perfect vintage for both banks in a decade. Many chateaux in the smaller Bordeaux, satellite appellations also produced some of the best wines of their career. 2000 Bordeaux wine was great from top to bottom. For that reason, 2000 Bordeaux was expensive the day it was first offered. Yet even though 2000 Bordeaux was the most expensive vintage ever offered as a future in its day, prices have continued climbing.
This dinner will be a comparison of two appellations from the Left and Right banks – Margaux and St. Emilion. The wines selected for this special dinner have been cellared at Peter Neptune MS's personal cellar since they were purchased on release.
