Wine vintage rating 2000

What was the vintage 2000 like?

2000 was a warm, dry vintage with highly concentrated, powerful wines - very intense, fragrant, suitable for long-term storage. The 2000 vintage is valued very highly and traded at high prices, which may be due in part to the symbolism of the turn of the millennium. The best wines are perfectly balanced. Above all, there is a large number of very, very good wines from Bordeaux.
The 5-8% of top-class wines that the entire growing area produces (there are around 600 excellent red wine wineries among more than 10,000 wineries that are more mass than class), the wineries with a long history and excellent soils are consistently successful.

Weather in the year 2000

The winter was very mild and very dry. The continued warmth of spring led to violent storms in May.

In June and July, too, there was very hot weather on the one hand, which was repeatedly interrupted by rainy storms on the other. August and September not only stayed hot, but were also consistently dry.

In Bordeaux, the first autumn rains began on September 19th. October brought a lot of rain.

Good filling levels, good wine quality

The fill level of an old vintage wine reveals important information on the drinkability of the wine.
Of course, the good condition of a wine from an old vintage depends on excellent storage. Above all, the wine must not have frequently changed cellars. Ideally, the wine will have rested in one and the same wine cellar.

But also the cork that sits in each individual bottle is very important. A perfect cork has few pores and keeps the wine stable. If an inferior cork happens to have been used in a bottle, the porous surface will begin to soak up wine and allow micro-quantities of the liquid to evaporate over the decades. Poor fill levels are the result.

A poor fill level therefore also indicates a high risk that the wine bottle could soon begin to leak.

The fill levels explained:
In the bottle neck (high fill to base neck) about 2 cm is perfect for wines.
Top and upper shoulder, ([very] top shoulder), approx. 3 cm is very good for very old wines.
Medium shoulder (mid shoulder), about 4 cm is only acceptable for rare top wines and in individual cases.
Everything below the red line should not be offered any more.

Wine rating

Do you have a 2000 vintage in your wine cellar and would you like to know how much it is worth?

Here are a few tips: in order to still have any value, the bottle must be leakproof. The wine must not be cloudy. It should be of good quality (not supermarket wine).

Search for the wine online without specifying the vintage. If it is a well-known winery, you will find the wine immediately and also the price you have to pay for the current vintage. If the current wine costs from EUR 20.00 upwards, that's a good sign.
