2000 Vintage - Burgundy Region
Vintage 2000 in Burgundy was, in general, a good but not great vintage. The white wines were mostly very solid. On the red wines, the northern growing area (Cotes de Nuits) fared much better than the Cotes de Beaune. The Beaune area had heavy rains that blew through the area during harvest.
The wines of the Cotes de Nuit are almost at the quality levels found in the very good 1999 vintage. The hardest hit area of the Cotes de Beaune seems to be in the wines of Volnay, which are almost uniformly worse than the 1999s.
As with any vintage, some of the best producers were able to make very good wine even in troubled times.
