($150) Rudy red in color, tinges of orange at margins. Big aroma. On the palate, ripe black fruit, methonal, high tannins, nice balance, superconcentrated; still very young, but enjoyable.

[Euphemia Haye] Decanted for 2 hours, served in substandard glasses, which muffled nose. Tobacco, sweet fruit, rose pedals on the nose; serious structure; Tar, camphor, dark chocolate, sweet red fruit; very nice wine. Obviously infanticide, but fun. Wont drink the next bottle for 6-7 years. Found the 01 more accessible. 92-94

Drank this with my 21 year old daughter who has been drinking wine her whole life. She and I both adored it. Long finish, bold bouquet and front end with a great midpalate and smooth long finish. Jammy with hints of earth, chocolate and espresso. The tannins were still youthful yet pleasant. Although it is 10 years old, this wine has at least another 2 or 3 decades. A classic Nebbiolo putting many of the Borolos to shame. The Gaja family knows how to make wine!

The 2000 Barbaresco, a full garnet with spice, plums, and licorice on its ample and expansive nose, is solid, tarry, structured, and long, and the rising density of the finish suggests that bottle time will be useful. Anticipated maturity: 2005andndash;2016.

The 2000 Barbaresco is beginning to show early tertiary qualities. Smoke, tobacco, cedar and dried cherries are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. Over time the Barbaresco gains a measure of freshness, with pretty floral aromas that weave into the finish. The tannins remain quite firm, and are likely to outlast the fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2020.

Most impressive. Hard to tell it apart from the single-vineyard crus because itrsquo;s so massive while also offering an incredibly dense texture. Shows mineral, stonelike, spicy and black currant character, while some new oak plays subtly in the background. Firm tannins on the finish. Best from 2005 through 2015.

The 1996 Barbaresco exhibits a dense ruby color as well as a forward nose of cherry liqueur earth, truffle, mineral and spicy scents. Rich, full-bodied, and seductive, with its moderate tannin largely concealed by the winersquo;s wealth of fruit and extract, this gorgeously pure offering gets my nod as the finest Barbaresco produced by Gaja since 1990. Anticipated maturity: 2002ndash;2016.

Gaja’s 2000 Sperss is wonderfully open and radiant. Layers of dark fruit, grilled herbs, cassis and smoke saturate the palate in this powerful, stunningly beautiful Sperss. Gorgeous inner perfume and a long, intense finish round things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2030.

"Incredible amount of fruit and character in this wine, with mint, mineral, blackberry and plum aromas turning to tobacco and tar. Full-bodied, with an iron-cast core of fruit, velvety tannins and a long, long finish....95." WS 7/04.
