The 2000 De Pez is a mid-weight St-Estephe still exhibiting some rugged tannins and a slightly dusty earthiness, but with nice black currant and black cherry notes, a healthy color, and little evolution since I tasted it out of the bottle in 2003. I am not sure this wine will blossom into anything of great significance, but it is a very good wine and should last another 10-15 years.
Deep crimson. Quite evolved and minerally. Lots of terroir apparent on this easy-to-read wine. Very lively and nerveux.
