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 took some time to open up but drank beautifully once it did.
