Wine Critic Reviews:

...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! Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050.

    This wine is most certainly a heavy-hitter. Medium-bodied, but bursting with intensity and aroma. There's an air of dignified maturity and power on display, as the red, black and blue fruits explode onto your palate. From the earliest intoxicating whiff to the magnificent finish, the wine does more than hold its own. Approachable, but with enough complexity to keep your attention.<br/>I was worried that the new oak would overpower the other flavors and aromatics, but thankfully that wasn't the case. The wine is layered and compelling, without sacrificing what makes it approachable. I predict several delicious decades still in store.

    This wine is nothing short of stunning. It's got more layers than a luxurious wedding cake, and more complexity than you can even imagine. You can drink it now, or wait, and the experience will be incredible whenever you decide to uncork. I bought this bottle secretly for my wife's birthday, and she was ecstatic! She loves Margaux wines, and this is one of her favorite vintages. We sat in front of the fireplace with the record player on, listening to nostalgic music from our youth and just having fun. I would recommend this wine to everyone who loves a good red.
