    2000 Margaux 1er Cru Classe from Bordeaux

    One of the greatest vintages of late 20th century... The 2000 Chateau Margaux blend carries a higher concentration of Cabernet Sauvignon. The 1er Cru Classe from Bordeaux offers sweet and elegant palate reminiscent of 1990 and 1996. The texture is a bit tenser than that of previous release, however, the finish remains sweet and very long. An exceptional vintage from Margaux appellation.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted blind, the 2000 Chateau Margaux was a reminder of the peaks that the millennial vintage could reach. Noticeably deep in color, the bouquet rivets you to the seat with copious red berry fruit, clove and truffle, hints of cedar emerging with time. As the aromatics open and aerate, the fruit profile seems to darken and manifests blackcurrants and bilberries. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin. There is immense depth and symmetry conveyed by this First Growth, quite masculine for the estate with a gentle but insistent grip. It is a brilliant wine that flirts with perfection. Afford it another 3-4 years if you can, because it will last decades. Tasted November 2016.
