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.

  1. a great way to relieve some of that workplace stress!

    Incredibly smooth and silky, this wine has a remarkable mouthfeel. The raspberries and strawberries create a very refreshing, springtime feeling. This airy playfulness reveals hints of concentration and intensity, with an extremely long finish to top it all off.<br/>I liked it, and my two sons loved it - it's the perfect wine for bonding with your children once they visit. My wife prepared some lovely pasta for the occasion, and we had a really fun evening together. What a great way to relieve some of that workplace stress! The price may be steep for some people, so I'm giving it four stars, but my personal experience with the wine was lovely.

    Three liters of almost pure Cabernet Sauvignon, and enough detail and complexity to keep you thinking for months. This vintage is incredibly good, and I would recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in red wine, or wine in general. Warm oak combined with red and dark berries creates that cozy, familiar feeling one might get from an evening in front of the fireplace. The wine is layered and multi-dimensional, perfect for those of us who like to analyze every flavor note and texture detail.<br/>Big recommendation from me. Keep an eye out for these beauties, their appeal never diminishes!
