    Is bottle of Pauillac 2000 win drinkable?
    My neighbour has given me the followintg info. He has a bottle of Pauillac 2000 1500ml 12.5% Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), to mark the opening of the wine cellars at Waddesdon Manor in 1994. Should he drink it or will it be vinegar? I didn't mention it, but is the 2000 relating to the year 2000? If so, I can't see how a 2000 vintage could be done for a 1994 ceremony. Or am I missing something?

    No the 2000 doesn't relate to the year it was bottled. It couldn't be if it was for that ceremony. Whether it is drinkable or not would depend on how it was stored for that time; on its side, cool and dark, but who knows. He has to open it to find out, so he might as well unless he wants to keep it as a souvenir forever gathering dust.

WIN 2000 Upgrade [ 1 Answers ]

Hi, Recently upgraded my desktop from WIN 98 to WIN 2000. Now, whenever I boot up, my desktop will appear, but there are no icons, taskbar or anything on the screen. My boot up disc that originally came with my computer has the WIN 98 OS on it and now I think the WIN 2000 will not let me format...
