Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94 points

The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Celestins has notes of sweaty saddle leather, roasted meats, dried Provencal herbs, and plenty of kirsch and black currant. Big and fleshy, with a hint of balsamic vinegar, and oodles of complexity and richness, it is no doubt controversial because it is so extreme in its aromas and flavors. But I love it. While I don't think it's one of Bonneau's most noteworthy achievements, it is certainly a powerful 2000 that will evolve for another 15-20 years.
