A consistent superstar. I've occasionally had "corked" and other similar thoughts on some bottles after opening the wine, but after 20 mins of breathing, the bottle is fine. The 2000 vintage is drinking really well now (2007) and I was very disappointed with the 2003. Try to get your hands on a 2000 or look for the 2005 which should be in the country soon.

Extremely rich Bordeaux Blend. Thick fruit flavors with good tannins. This really won't taste good unless you decant it for an hour - but it's absolutely worth the extra effort! Very good for the price.

I'd like the chance to change my opinion on this wine. The one bottled I've had was corked, so I set it aside for cooking. Three weeks of not-quite-closed on the counter later the friend who'd vetoed it as corked (I didn't even taste it then) picked it up by accident, tried it, and liked it.

Mellow and fruity with a long, oaky finish.

Very rich jammy fruits, good tannins and a decent finish. Let stand before serving or decant.

Very deep, dark and rich. Brooding a lot of earthy and herbal characters but still with a dark fruit background. Definitely needs to be decanted beforehand.

Primarily Merlot, blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Very Bordeaux-like and thoroughly impressive for the price--this wine is a superior value.

This is primarily Merlot, blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. A wine for Bordeaux fans and quite an impressive one at that, this is an excellent value.

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Dark Garnet. Nose: Upon opening, oak and strong vegetable note (My wife says it smells like scallion). After 1 hour of decanting, stronger aroma of vanilla, cassis and dried cherry finally emerges. Palate: Cassis, blueberry and dried red fruit flavors with faint hint of tobacco. Angular mouth feel with relatively harsh tannins. Still fairly alcoholic. Body: Light to medium with minimum structure. Finish: Rather short. Mostly dried red fruits, peppery and notes of drying tannins. This wine may need 1-2 years to allow the alochol read more... to mellow a bit further. 2000 Baron D’ Ardeuil Vieilles Vignes is produced by the Buzet Vinegrowers Cooperative that oversees over 1700 hectares of vineyard. The grapes are sourced from vineyards in Gascon. It is a blend of 24% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Cabernet Franc. After fermentation, this wine is aged in 30% new oak barrels for 18 months before bottling
