Tasting Notes Margaux 2000

100

This is like smelling an amazing bouquet of flowers, deep and thought provoking. Notes of raspberries, and strawberries round out the refined nose. Full and silky. More than just silk really, it is almost transparent. Incredibly mellow, yet enticing. It is difficult to find the perfect word. It is as ethereal as Paul Pontieller, managing director of Chateaux Margaux says. The impeccable balance makes this perfect to drink now, but it will get even better with more time. This is already ageless.

Absolutely compelling in two tastings of this vintage, the 2000 Margaux is composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. The extraordinary seductiveness, complex aromatics, and purity it exhibits lead me to believe it has reached its window of full maturity. Medium-bodied, with layers of concentration, stunning blue, red, and black fruits intermixed with spring flowers, a subtle dosage of new oak, and a distinctive personality that is elegant while at the same time powerful and substantial, this is a multi-dimensional wine that was extremely approachable and drinkable in both tastings I had of it. The color remains a healthy, even opaque bluish/purple, but there is no reason to hesitate to drink it. It should evolve for another 30-40 years, so there is no hurry either.

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 2000 tasting in London. This has a lovely nose, black fruit, fruitcake, mulberry, graphite, cedar and a touch of black olive. Very fine definition and lift, just building with every swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied, very well poised, such a fine silver thread of acidity with melting tannins, touches of cooked meat and dried herbs, very elegant towards the finish. This is sophisticated and regal. Drink 2015-2045. Tasted March 2010.
