Description

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.

Château Margaux has always been one of the greatest estates in the Médoc. The only Premier Grand Cru Classé in the commune of Margaux, it remains one of the most evocative names in the Bordeaux vineyards. The long-keeping wines produced there are fragrant, elegant and renowned for combining finesse and power. There are deep aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry with which mingle, after a few years, more evolved scents of tobacco and cedar. The name of Margaux transcends its wine and evokes supreme refinement, we are talking here about one of the symbols of French culture...
