2000 Chateau Margaux Bordeaux - 100 Pts!
Since the 17th Century, the first wine of Château Margaux has been recognized as being one of the greatest wines in the entire world.   

 

It owes its unique qualities to the genius of its terroir as well as to the passionate work of a succession of generations. It’s a remarkable wine that comes from a combination of characteristics that are only rarely found: finesse, elegance, complexity, density, intensity, length and freshness. Although its tannic concentration may be exceptional, it’s rare to detect astringency.

The great vintages are distinguished by their formidable ability to move us. The lesser vintages give pleasure to wise enthusiasts. They offer the advantage of evolving very rapidly and, reveal, after a few years, instead of power, this subtlety that is the prerogative of great terroirs.

Château Margaux has an extraordinary ability to evolve. Over the years, it has developed a finesse, an aromatic complexity and a remarkable presence on the palate.

Rating 100 RP - Bottled in late November 2002 the 2000 has turned out to be a colossal example of Chateau Margaux that is tasting even better from bottle than it was from cask. Only 40% of the crop made it into this 2000 Margaux a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. Stylistically it is somewhat of a hybrid between the succulent opulent fleshy 1990 and the more delineated structured cooler climate-tasting 1996. The 2000 possesses a saturated ruby/purple color to the rim as well as an extraordinarily promising nose of creme de cassis intermixed with white flowers licorice and hints of espresso and toasty oak. There is great intensity compelling purity a multi-layered full-bodied palate and a finish that goes on for nearly 70+ seconds. Bottled naturally with no filtration it is a monumental example of the elegance and power that symbolize this extraordinary vineyard. A tour de force in winemaking many of my colleagues predicted far earlier than me that it would be the "wine of the vintage." It is certainly one of the wines of the vintage but there is plenty of competition even at this lofty level of quality. Absolutely awesome! RP
