Great bottle, purchased at the chateau about 15 years ago. I only wish I could remember the exact price tag. I think it was under 25 Euros though.

This has aged into quite a beauty. Floral, lots of potting soil, some cassis, fresh rain, meadow, a dark profile yet aged yet not. Terrific nose. Lots of tar and tobacco as well. Palate is compact and fresh with nice density and opulence and length. Persistent. Good ripe tannins and that trademark 2000 whiplash acidity. Love it.

Slightly pruney but a good example of 'normal' Margaux in this vintage.

Love me some 2000 Bordeaux. Flowers, wet dirt, berries, really vivid aromas. Great 2000 acids, inner mouth aromas and very pure. Elegant, good concentration. I think this was $22 on futures. Only futures I ever bought were 2000. Still have a few cases to dig into.

This was showing well at 20 yrs that had soft berry fruits, earth, floral notes, sweet spices, leather & tobacco.

Smooth tannin and dark fruit is still hanging on with pencil tones. Has some finesse for a cab and did well with time. Drink now.

Cork compromised, a little musty smell. The wine itself, however, retains good flavor and a lot of character. Good wine, good vintage. I hope other 2000’s in the collection fare better.
