Caronne Sainte Gemme 2000

This is a very smart Caronne Sainte Gemme, from a good year.  There's fresh jammy, pippy fruit with a touch of anise by way of fragrance.  On the palate, it's classic left bank Bordeaux.  Blackcurrants, tannins and good length.  This wine is built to last, and I really enjoyed it.  If I was to pick a fault, it was perhaps a touch "barny".  But it didn't detract from what is a very good wine.  89? points (7.4?/10).
